It was sad to learn of the passing of Al Christie's (VE1ZS) daughter, Susan Hill. Our condolences go out
to Al, Mary and family at this difficult time. Here is the obituary from Campbell's Funeral Home in
Amherst, NS:
DTMF Board Turns on Lights at Home!

VE1GK, Glenn gave a short "Hints & Kinks" presentation during
the October club meeting regarding the DTMF board he has
through which he can use DTMF tones from an HT to turn on
lights at his home. In fact, he demonstrated this on the way home
from the meeting and I saw the flashing lights high up in Clairmont
while listening to his demo on two metres. Well done Glenn!

(Below is Glenn's photo of the DTMF Board)
