From Cees PA2X
Dear Bill and Jim,
YO9BC, Coco from Romania just called a bit earlier, at 12.10 hours, on
14.293, and I responded.
Coco explained he could not participate in the Net today, because he had
a meeting out of his town,
which he had to be present. So he excused himself.
He asked me to pass to you and the rest of the net all the best season
greetings, happy Christmas
and best wishes for 2007.
I sent you this email upfront, when conditions might fail...you are
informed already about Coco 73
