Newsletter Day Change

I’ve been mulling over the timing of the Newsletter for a month or so now. Since I’m now retired, the timing of the Newsletter fits the Amateur Radio news-cycle and club activities better for a mid-day Friday publication. This will be an abbreviated edition today updating last week’s recurring items.

Story suggestions, complaints, slings, arrows, brickbats, spelling, etc., send to wb5ulk@arrl.net.

See you on Friday!


 The Doctor Is In

Many of us have enjoyed Joel Hallas’ (W1ZR) columns in QST titled “The Doctor Is In” for years.
Now selected stuff from The Doctor is available via podcast from the ARRL.
This week: “Does CW really get through when nothing else can?”

The Doctor, April 21, CW Gets Through

Here is the link to “The Doctor Is In” landing page. Contacts, past episodes, etc.:  http://www.arrl.org/news/arrl-the-doctor-is-in-podcast-guide-now-available
