Hello All

I would like to announce that Dale Bagley K0KY, will be stepping down as the editor of our section news. His presence will be sorely missed by all and certainly be me. Not only do I have great respect for Dale I consider him my friend and mentor. Dale will have a spot any time he wants one. We wish you all the best and good health Dale.

I just got back from the Ozarkscon QRP Conference held in Branson MO at the Stone Castle Hotel and Conference Center. I must say it continues to grow and get better with each passing year. The four corners group are the organizers of the convention and do one of the best jobs I've seen. There were forums put on by several speakers including Bob Heil with his presentation on the Pine Board Project and more. Classes to build several different kinds of kits and kit radios were put on throughout the 2 day conference. The atmosphere was fun and a lot of new projects will, without a doubt, be on the air all around the U.S. A big hand to all those that worked so hard to make the conference happen.


I hope everyone is enjoying the somewhat warmer weather and ask that we keep an eye to the sky. Severe weather season is on us.
