Report #037 03/01/03
SW LISTENERS CONVENTION If you are going to attend the Fest and have not as yet called for a room reservation, I learned that the last room has been taken so you will have to stay at another hotel in the area. I plan to leave early 6 March. I always like to get to Kulpsville a day early as it affords an opportunity to chat with other early arrivals.
The following CRYPTOQUIP will be available at the Fest as a hand-out.
This CRYPTOQUIP appeared in the 01/27/03 issue of the Martinsburg WV Journal.
It is very appropriate for the SWL FEST!
