Editor's Note

After a three year hiatus, ARW is back! Technically this is a soft re-launch while I wrap up a final graduate school class and get back into the swing of the hobby. (New issues may be sporadic while getting caught up.) In the meantime, I'm anxious to see what Ham Radio has been up to the past few years. I've missed putting these together and look forward to gracing your inbox with the latest that Amateur Radio has to offer!
