This is just a thought ...... but there was a lot of "toing and froing"
between Australia and New Zealand at that stage.
It may be worth asking some of the Aussies on the List who have the BMDs
for the various States to see if they can pick them up. I don't have these,
or I would check for you.
Kindest Regards ...... Corinne in Melbourne, Australia.
