From Max 5Z4MR
Dear Bill,
Many thanks for the regular " ROAR Nets". Am always looking forward to reading the same.
I have an article about how Amateur Radio help during Natural Calamities including a mention about me and the assistance I provided.
The article appeared in the Readers Digest a few years ago.
Please advise the route to send the copies of the article.
There is also an article in World Scouting where there is a mention about JOTA and amateur radio.
If you could e-mail me the address of Rtn. John Maier I'll send the details to him and copies to you.

Kind regards and with Rotary Greetings.
