Dear Bill, Bill and Pertti
I rounded Cape Eightyfour today (D-day) and it has taken a great deal of my time. I promised Bill (ZD) to prepare this report and I apologize for the delay.

Many Thanks to Jack Page WN55BD for the folowing report :-
G4YZE, Mr.Bill,
This reporter was pleasantly surprised TWICE today.
WA8BOB ROAR member Jerry from Ohio checked in and said he would be checking in more often now that some of his business affairs have been re organized. And Dave WN5V last years RI Convention booth station master W5R checked in. Net control was Joe AF1E today. Others who checked in with us were: KF5BD Jack, W6DY Larry from California and W2LGF Reuben also from California. W8AUV past prez John, and another past prez EA7GSU Pertti .
Reported by Jack .
                                                   That's all for this week,
                                                       73 de Bill G4YZE
