Forgive the bandwidth, need to get this response
to Rag, OZ8RO, my email to him directly was returned.
Unfortunately, it all seems to be true. I hope
you are seeing all the traffic on the reflectors
about this issue. Please, please send an opinion
to the IARU about this, and to your own country's
representative, should you have any way of knowing
who this person mignt be.
