Well he did have to swallow something and go ...dare I
say it "the NET" to Ray's VK2TV BBS. So now for packet
until he is moved to his new QTH somewhere in the wilds
of New Jersey, he is coming from Australia.
I'm sure Ray VK2TV, stamped Warren's packet passport..<g>.

Yes you should! He might like it, and want to move there
and then it would be easy to find him ... he's the "Colonial"
with the funny looking oversized boat on a trailer parked
in the driveway, blocking the roadway. The boat would need
to be confiscated due to illegal weapons. Kep! A real
threat to Australia.

Actually Bob, we also have a saying too about "eating crow",
and it wasn't referring to where we are living or where
we come from . Ray started this recipe on "Crow n Stones"
as a poke at Warren for having the "tagline" "RADIO ONLY"
don't use Internet, or something to that effect ... so
Ray couldn't resist, and as he needs a few pokes, I let
ol Warren have an elbow, and got a 2 minute penalty.
I see you even took a poke at Ian VK5QX. Poor Ian, he has
been listed "SK" and that caused a furry in OZ, and with his
friends. Now he is a former Sandgroped turned Croweater.
Love all the nicknames, it reminds me of how certain US states
have the same names given their residents. I have not
hear if all Canadian Provinces have nicks or not, some do and
Before I head to breakie ... Did I get the feeling of excitment
in your text? Perhaps you wish Warren was in Australia?
Hmmm that would make an interesing crew at the chew n choke?
Have to go....Maria is calling .... ttfn Pete VE3WBZ
