From Don G0JWE on Wednesday.29/11
Hi Bill,
Had a long conversation with Nate yesterday (his birthday) 86, I think.
Today he is back on screen with a new web camera,  earphones and microphone - a birthday present from his grandson.
He is off to Rotary today with copies of a publication to encourage his Club members to invite friends, colleagues etc.
to join Rotary. I hope he is successful - we are struggling like most Clubs even though we are trying to move to a Twilight
slot (6.15pm) and catch every one on their way home from work.
Good propagation with Nate - no QRM Hi Hi.
See you about 17th December.  (Don is off on a cruise on the Black Prince)
73 & 88 to Jose,
