Good Morning Bill
Good propagation on 40mx this Sunday saw Diane VK4KYL, Bill VK4ZD, Phil VK3FPDB, Peter VK3FPSR and myself in attendance. Phil is to enter hospital on Monday for some elective surgery and we wish him well. He hopes to be sufficiently mobile to join us next Sunday!

cellar for a couple of hours on Thursday. There were three tornado touchdowns nearby.
The nearby town of Springfield suffered severe damage that day.

Many Thanks to Treasurer Bob Butler for the following report :-
Hi Bill. Terrible conditions today. Joe W0TBC was net control.
Checking into the net were the following;
Jack KF5BD - Jim W1QUO - Reuben W2LGF - Carlos WI9R, a guest and me WB7RQG.
Jack could hear everyone but had to relay everyone else.
Starting Sunday July 3 we will start the net at 1900Z
This will be one hour later than we have in the past.
Most of us go to church which necessitated the change.
I will send a note to the web master to make the necessary change on our web site.
73, Bob, WB7RQG
                                           That's all for this week,
