Debby Says…I am a little concerned at the number of deposits I have received in the bank account with no call sign nor membership number as a reference.
If you have recently paid your subscription by internet banking, can you please check the date it was paid and if you included a reference so that I can credit the correct membership. This ONLY applies to direct credit payments, not cheque or credit card.
The same applies to a number of new members who have taken up the special promo price to join the Association. If you know of someone who has not heard from me, but has paid into our bank account, please ask them to forward me their application as soon as possible. Without it I cannot include their name in the prize draw.
The final issue of HQ Info-line will be sent out on Friday 14th December. If you have anything you wish to include please send to me before Thursday 13th.
Talk soon…Debby ZL2DL
