Subject: Netletter 21 - Between Ourselves. . Calling all AC Hams - following from Philip Pawsey - Last Tuesdays net had about 25 check ins. VE7WW Charlie Mackie is always on board and does a super job of controlling the net with great support from VE4TT John Doney in Morden, VE4TL Bill Loftus in WG who is just out of the hospital after breaking a hip. Bill now reports that he had problems extending and retracting his port undercarriage. I suggested that the trouble maybe is because they left the pins in. Other regular check ins are VE3AZA CHUCK PALMER, VE3AGO DOUG MARCHANT,VE3CXA GORD MCKEN,VE3RH RUBE HADFIELD, VE3ST GRAHAM WILLIAMS, VE3TTX JACK RUSSELL, VE3JSB BOB BROWN, VE2DEM DAVE WALKER, VE2QX GORD HYKLE (GORD IS NOT FEELING TOO WELL THESE DAYS, ON MEDICATION WITH SIDE EFFECTS), VE1BZL JOHN STEWART,VE1CAJ DON WHITE, VO1CA TOM CUNNINGHAM (our only ck in from the rock), and several more from time to time. Personally, Philip talks to VE3OWC-Walter Chopp and VE2BQJ-Jack McDougall and VE1DLB Don Beatty each morning down in Lakeland and Dade Cit FLA. Never say anything important but manage to keep in touch. There is not quite as much packet radio activity now since E mail has come in but I still enjoy it and manage to check in a few times each day. Had a long discussion with VE2FUX -Allan McLeod and Bob Brown re the most likely closing of Mirabel Airport. That is going to be rough in this area because many of the people who work there live in the Lachute, St Jerome etc. area. Allan is just back from BQI where he spent a months vacation Al is the pilot who flys the L10A and is in charge of the Flt-Op end of it. -=o0o=- . At last Vesta's efforts to get free access to a BBS for Pionairs by means of a 1-800 nr is close to being achieved. Vesta and I have mentioned, from time to time, the BBS operated by Alan Rust in Vancouver. Alan offered to have a separate conference on his board for Pionairs and their interests, and these are in place. The Pionair Executive and Saville Hambleton, the District Director for Vancouver Island are now looking into this. Stayed tuned, Vesta and I are hoping to have good news to tell you before the AGM in Ottawa in May 1996. /------------------------------------\ | Alan Rust, SysOp, ACRA Airline BBS | /~~\_____/~~\__ | | FAX(604)536-4593, BBS(604) 541-1878 |___ \ ACRA_======)-+ | Surrey, British Columbia, Canada | ~~~|/~~ | | E-Mail - This email address is being protected from spambots.
