This is a special broadcast for the VK Amateur Radio Community about the Wireless Institute of Australia Board Election which is currently under way. You should have received your voting pack by now, if not, contact the WIA office urgently on weekdays between 6am until noon WST to ensure your vote counts.
We'll be sharing contributions from the candidates, explaining how the proxy voting system works and how you can make your voice count.
This special broadcast also means that our normal programming has been suspended. Roy's Helpline will return next week, as will Foundations of Amateur Radio, though if you need your fix, you can listen to the podcast edition this week. The RAOTC broadcast reminder is online at vk6.net where you'll also find calendars and net information as well as the download link for this episode of the news.
On behalf of WA Amateur Radio News, producers of NewsWest, Amateur Radio News in Western Australia since 1931, thank you for joining us.
