Editor's Note

I'd like to take just a moment away from today's issue to announce a new project and ask for your feedback. The new project is a website called NetFinder, and the goal is to be the definitive Ham Radio net directory on the web.

It's early days and very ambitious, but there's enough there to start kicking the tires. I'd love to hear what you think!
Read more about the project here. Or jump straight to the directory. 73 K4HCK
