After valuable service to the Amateur Radio community as a Director of the WIA, Glenn Dunstan VK4DU is not seeking re-election to the Board due to business commitments. Glenn's forthright and pithy communications with Board members will be sadly missed.

The WIA Board is delighted that Peter Young VK3MV has nominated for the director's position on the Board of the WIA that will be vacated by Glenn.

Peter has contributed to the betterment of Amateur Radio over a long period most recently, firstly, as the elected chairman of the WIA group reporting on the WIA Study Group on Independent Review of Government Spectrum Holdings - Public Discussion Paper of 13 November 2006 and, secondly, in the provision of valuable knowledge and assistance to our President, Michael Owen VK3KI, in various detailed negotiations with the ACMA on behalf of radio amateurs.


Regular readers of AR Magazine and the news items on the WIA web site will be aware of the observations and reports Peter has compiled on the various BPL trials in Australia.

Peter has been a licenced amateur since 1965 and has a background in maritime communications engineering. He is a former Regional Manager in Melbourne and the first Manager, BPL Project Team for ACA/ACMA.

As Amateur Radio operators we are indeed fortunate to have someone with Peter's technical and administrative knowledge, understanding and skill seeking election to the Board of the WIA.
