Hello Guido,

        Well, as it happens I was in the BBC Hong Kong relay station
last Wednesday!  It has been an ambition of mine to go to HK for a long
time and I finally made it.  My wife and 2 daughters and I got back last
night and we are still suffering from the 7 hour time lag plus catching
up with all the mail, the weeds and the lawn mowing, but in the next
couple of days I intend to write a little article about my visit to the
station and will post it here.  

        To answer your question, there is no decision yet about the
close down date, as it depends on the commissioning of the new Thailand
relay, but it has to close by the end of October.  The whole site has to
dismantled and returned to a "green field site" by the Spring of next
year, this is a condition of the lease apparently.

        Miles Ashton is the manager of the station and he promised that
he would e-mail me when the close down date is known.  Meanwhile, stand
by for an article about the station.

        Now, where is that lawn mower........?

                73,  Richard Buckby
