always welcome and usually take part in WARO activities especially the WARO get togethers

Are overseas members of WARO sponsored into WARO by ZL members and at 30th. April 1996 the DX membership stood at 112. These members are from many countries, many long time friendships have been formed between the ZL WARO members and their DX sponsors. A number of ZL WARO members have been fortunate to visit their DX sponsors in their home countries or to have them visit New Zealand.
We were very fortunate to have the privilige of a visit from one of our more famous WARO DX members at the AGM at New Plymouth in June 1994. Dr. Ellen Baker KB5SIX, an astronaut with NASA sponsored by Dianne ZL2USO.
If you are interested in sponsoring a DX member let
our Sponsorship Secretary Celia ZL1ALK know, Celia
will be very happy to find a suitable person for you to sponsor. At present
it costs $5 per year to sponsor a DX member into WARO.
