On a final note, don’t forget to visit the www.hamradioelpaso.com website regularly.


There is a new “D-STAR” page that Lew KB5HPT manages.  It contains information on the D-STAR nets and other various D-STAR related information.


If you have any ideas or input for other local ham radio activities that would be good for the web site, please sent it to me.
