HAM GEAR FOR SALE

Hi All,
The attached pdf file contains a list of ham gear for sale . One of our
local hams is in a care home and his XYL has asked me to list some of
his gear. I have not seen any of the rigs so do not know what their
condition might be. His XYL put the list together and made up the
asking price.

New Show - Shaw channel 4 - Head On - forwarded from Paul Giffin

Good Day

I have just been advised that SHAW TV will be running a show called Head On on Channel 4 ( in Nanaimo) This show will feature interviews with Karen Lindsay of Nanaimo and Aaron Dawson ( EPC Parksville). I have not as yet seen the show, but I am given to understand there is information on Ham Radio presented during the show.

Head On has several different smaller "shows"all of which are rotated so I can't give a specific time of when this segment will be aired. Just a heads up for you in case you watch Shaw.
