[Pages 4 and 5 reports on one of the HAM radio contacts. The pdf of the serial is here. Because these contacts reported little more than the dates and summaries of HAM radio conversations – all of which were before November 18 and most of which had no bearing on the events of that day – these pages have not been transcribed.]
