Please take the time to go the NIST web site and take the survey. They
want to know if you are using the services they provide on WWV and WWVH.
I believe they are contemplating some changes (downsizing, etc.). If you
value these sources of frequency standards, time and accuracy, it
behooves you to go to their web site at nist.gov and click on the time
and frequency services survey. Tell your friends, too, and let's keep
WWV and WWVH on the air forever.
Thank you for your time.

I would like to let everyone know that www.eHam.net has created a
discussion forum for youth and youth related items. If you are a young ham,
or know of a young ham (or a youngster who is interested in Amateur Radio),
or are involved with young Amateur Radio operators, please check this forum
out and pass the word along!
Perhaps this forum can be used to rile up some new blood in T-Hunting.

I have an old 60W 150MH GE base station (Transistor receiver and
Transmitter driver and tube PA) Desktop model that I would like to
give to anyone who wants it. I'm cleaning out my garage and the
radio is one of the things I have to get rid of. If anyone wants it,
please call me at 682-5005 to be sure that I am home when you want to
pick it up. thanks , Ed Morin W6SNI
I will be attending, so if anyone wants to go down with me, just let me
know. After the event, I usually have dinner with Joe and April and it is a
great opportunity to find out what is happening in the world of ARDF!!!
Schabarum Regional Park near Rowland Heights will be the site of southern
California's next international-style on-foot 2-meter foxhunt on Saturday,
June 16. This is an official training session for the ARDF Team Southern
California, but it is free and open to everyone who wants to see and try the
sport. A ham radio license and knowledge of radio equipment is not
At least six members of the team are expected to attend, coming from Los
Angeles, Orange, Ventura, and Santa Barbara counties. Come out and meet
of the radio-athletes who will represent us at the First USA National ARDF
Championships in Albuquerque later this summer.
Since it's primarily for team training , the main course will be more
difficult than previous ARDF sessions in this and other southern California
venues. Standard international rules will be more closely followed. Total
course lengths will be 5 to 10 kilometers, depending on age/gender division,
with significant elevation changes. There will be a "beginner" course
much shorter, with fewer hills. An optional 80-meter transmitter (3542 KHz)
will also be on the air for you to try.
Trails are primitive in some areas of the park, so wear sturdy shoes. All
ages are welcome, but young children must be accompanied by an adult at all
Bring any 2-meter RDF "sniffing" gear you have. If you don't have any, just
bring your HT or scanner. A limited number of RDF sets will be available
loan. Also be sure to bring anything you'll need while going after those
radio foxes, such as munchies, bottled water and sunscreen. Topographic
course maps will be available, so bring your own compass, protractor and
pencil. Make sure all batteries are fresh.
Practice 2-meter transmitters will go on the air around 11:30 AM, and the
main 5-fox hunt will begin at 12:30 PM. There are picnic tables and BBQ
grills nearby, so you can bring your lunch or cook up something if you wish.
The park entrance is on the south side of Colima Road, just east of Azusa
Avenue in Hacienda Heights. (Thomas Guide Pg678-G4) Entry fee for the park
is $3 per vehicle, so carpooling would be a good idea. Upon passing through
the entry gate, drive straight ahead (don't turn right) and continue to the
end of the road (about 0.7 mile). Park in the last parking lot near the
restrooms. The action will be just up the hill to your left. Look for the
orange and white Orienteering flags and signs. Call K0OV on 146.970 simplex
if you have trouble finding the site.

Steve Gibson has described a Denial of Service attack against his site as

and a recommendation to install ZoneAlarm to protect against such things. A
long article but WELL worth the time spent to read it.
