IARU Region 1, cut the ribbon in a reopening ceremony.

that 25 club members were  scheduled  to  take  the  amateur  radio  license
examination in late July and that the fee for taking the exam was about  one
month's salary in Ethiopia.
Accordingly, the Board voted unanimously  in  favor  of  a  grant  to  cover
one-half of the examination  fees  for  all  25  applicants,  the  remaining
one-half having been previously committed from the Radio  Society  of  Great
Britain.  Yasme  Vice-President  and  Director   Fred    Laun,    K3ZO,  was
instrumental in making possible this grant. [TNX W6SZN]
