From Cumbre DX member Thomas Witherspoon: "Hi, Group, I need your help. Could you please sign this petition and share it with your friends and SW radio enthusiast networks? This is more about stopping Sackville from being dismantled and preserving some of its antennas and transmitters for the NQ Service of the CBC. Thanks! -Thomas"
