From (retiring) Communicator Editor Don G0JWE.
Hi Bill,
As you heard on the net I have sent a copy of the Communicator to Diane and Bill.  It should be on the web fairly soon.
Perhaps you would be kind enough to mention this for everyone in next week's Net report.
 I am printing out copies for the UK members along with Brian's Christmas Newsletter and Booking Form.
We are away from 2nd - 16th December on the Black Watch (G2CJL's line, I think) and Brian would like them out before we go away. 
I would have liked to speak to Diane but once again - no one would leave a break!!  (She did call him ! )
Next weekend is our newest granddaughter's christening so I don't know what our movements will be.
Cheers for now,  73   Don. G0JWE.
(Look for the Communicator on )
