In the news this week we take a close look at the dysfunction that is paralysing the Wireless Institute of Australia. We report on what appears to be financial mis-management, lack of procedure, substantial financial losses and give you an overview how this all came to be. During the week two confidential WIA Board reports from two separate Treasurers were leaked containing what can only be described as explosive content. These documents are available from the vk6.net website and we discuss them in detail. A call for a General Meeting of the WIA has been made and the secretary of the WIA has announced the intent of the Institute to hold the meeting in late January. It's fortunate that we are also active amateurs, so we have regular segments, activities and the weekly Helpline to keep your interest and I report on the fall-out on demise of a bearing from my desk. We also have the unenviable duty to start our bulletin with a Silent Key announcement for Eric VK6FEDS. You can listen to the news on-air, on-line or on-demand.
