The PDF file does not contain any text, only an image and not a very high
resolution image at that. Partial success could be had with extracting the
pages as images (or doing screenshots) and then manipulating the images with
an OCR program, but IMO the quality of the images is not good enough for a
high degree of OCR accuracy.
Pages 3 and 4 are much poorer quality than 1 and 2.
I extracted them as images and processed them a little, here they are
attached to this listmail.
