More changes at BARTG.

Phil, GU0SUP has had to relinquish his post as Awards Manager due to 
circumstances. Phil did a great job for BARTG and we thank him for 
his services.
He says he will try to support the contests as and when time allows.
   His place has been taken by Chris Plummer, G8APB and we welcome 
him to the
Committee. His resume and picture can be found on the BARTG web site 
the COMMITTEE tab.
   We would also like to welcome Graeme Castleton, G6CSY to the 
subgroup. Graeme will help streamline the contest procedure and will 
also be a source
of information on various software programs. Take a look at his 
resume and you will
find that in the same place.
