Hi gang --
Toiva ES2RR has been working in Illinois for the last couple of months.
He is one of the top contesters from Estonia.
This year he has the chance for a dream which, a decade ago, seemed
impossible: to come to Dayton.
Does anyone have a spare bed/room that Toiva can pick up? If so, please
contact him directly. His office telephone is 815-259-3311 extension 236...
and he works staggered hours, typically 12noon - 10pm CDT.
Thanks. -- Eric K3NA
