Ya no recuerdo si era HK3AR o RA. Se han demorado algo los de contesting.com en publicar el mensaje, pero finalmente lo dejaron pasar. Es como el que traducí antes pero sin, aparentemente, señalar a nadie.
Respecto al libro en cuestión sobre los viajes del Mr. Weil, y sus problemas en Colombia con unos radioaficionados hace casi 50 años. ¿Hay alguien aquí que pueda arrojar una luz sobre el tema? A ver si algún "old timer" que conozcan y que sepa la historia nos pueda contar algo.
