Dear Bill
Operated from Melbourne with a random wire antenna this Sunday and had a brief QSO with Henk VK2GWK and heard Bill VK4ZD.
Last week from Flinders had a long QSO with Brian VK5CO who will be QRT for a few weeks as he is to be in Europe for a few weeks.
Looking forward to a few more sunspots!

From Roar President John Maier : -
Hello John Maier, Pres. ROAR,
We wanted to let you know that John Maier, Pres. ROAR ( forwarded you an article from the Rotary International Web site.
To read the article, click on the link below or copy and paste this link into the address line of your Web browser.

Hi Bill, I suppose this is good news to all of you in the UK.  Just thought you would like the official news and to send to others in the UK & Europe. 

YIR es 73, John
The web site message reads as follows:-
Salt Lake City,
The Rotary International Board Of Directors has changed the tentative site of the 2009 RI Convention from Seoul to Birmingham, England.
The event was provisionally scheduled for 21-24 June 2009.
The change was necessary because some segments of the planning for the convention were behind schedule.  These delays and other associated issues
hindered the ability of local Rotary clubs to organise
and host such a large scale, international meeting.
