European CB Congress 2014

As reported on the E.C.B.F. website (Link), the 14th European CB Congress takes place on 16th/17th July:

"The ECBF celebrates its 14th. European Congress of CB this July in Brussels. This conference, held every four years, will be used to, among other issues to discuss, choose a new Board, propose a reform of laws and approve the entry of new members.

For now, have confirmed their participation delegates from Belgium, Catalonia, France, Germany, Poland, Portugal, Spain and United Kingdom. Pending the presence of delegates from Croatia, the Netherlands, Sweden and Switzerland"

One major difference this time around is that we, the UK, are represented for the first time in over 20 years. Our representation comes in the form of Dave (M0OGY) following The Brigg And District Amateur Radio Club  becoming an E.C.B.F. member and his appointment earlier in the year as the United Kingdom Delegate for the E.C.B.F. 

I have no doubt that Dave will strive to make our collective voice heard on the things that matter to UK CB radio users, and I'm sure that you will all join me in wishing Dave well in his endeavors.
