Here is a news item that would be too late if we waited for the next ANS
I'm posting this as a favor for Tom W5KUB since many hams enjoy his live
amateur radio webcasts. AMSAT is not sponsoring any part of this event nor
endorses any of the products or commercial content.
Lots of hams have a good time during Tom's shows so tune in if you can. You
might win one of his on-line prize drawings too. He randomly picks a
participant in the webchat.
When live webcasts are not going on he loops recordings of his previous
shows. His amateur radio webchat is available from his web page also.
