    They used to publish them each month in QST but I don't remember seeing them for years. Pretty popular feature, though.

    I was a member of K5TYP from 1987 until the early 1990's. I used to go over on Sunday afternoon's and operate 10M. I would like to get the repeater going again. I would love to get a Fusion repeater. That would allow normal analog comm as well as the Yaesu Fusion worldwide system. I think it would be a very popular room for old members to get back in touch. What do you all think about this idea? Lee, K5CUB - ex N5JUM

    Wow! What an idea! I'm still hesitating on VHF/UHF digital because I'm waiting for DMR to eventually squash D-Star and Fusion. But if K5TYP gets a Fusion repeater up with a Wires-X interface, I'll just *HAVE* to buy a Yaesu and a hot spot! (two things wrong with that: not Icom, not DMR... but I'll just *HAVE* to!)

    Hi everyone!

    I retire on 30 Sept and so will lose my work iPhone and e-mail address. My new main e-mail will be james.walroth@icloud.com

    I can do facetime on my iPAD if I have a wi-fi connection.

    Congrats on the retirement. I came home from Nebraska and a week later, I got called back out and sent to Georgia for Hurricane Dorian!
    Well, I am back on the Gulf Coast again! Maybe mother nature will let me stay a few weeks! lol.....

    Actually Ernie is now a silent key as of about 2 months ago I'm sorry to say..... he checked into the Mississippi Section Phone Net every night. I've been the net manager of that net for several years.

    Yes, very sorry to hear that. Ernie and I used to work 6 meters together in the early 90's while I was stationed at Keesler. Fine gentleman and ham. :(
