From Bill's hospital bed: January 15, 2015

Not much new to report.  I had hoped to be home by now but my doctors say otherwise.  

The two ribs are healing nicely, but as long as I am here they want me to do a few weeks of cardio re-hab before they sign me clear, but I have no idea as to how long this will take.  (For those not aware I been a sufferer of Coronary Artery Disease since about 1983 and went through an out patient cardio rehab program back then.)  

For now, the full length ARNewsline newscast remains down.  am looking to find a volunteer with a background in Broadcast Journalism / Radio News Production and who can devote about a day a week to come aboard as a co-producer with me.  I can easily write stories and scripts from here, but doing the editing, post production, etc. would be all but impossible from this environment.

In the meantime, a compact (about 6 minute) audio/video version will continue to be produced by Don Wilbanks, AE5DW, and will be posted to several locations including our Facebook page, our website (www.arnewslinre.org) and included on the weekly show Ham Nation (twit.tv/hn).

My sincere thanks to both Don and out Webmaster Kevin Trotman N5PRE, for keeping the various entities as up to date as possible with the latest breaking news and I can assure you that the full length newscast (both audio and text) will be back -- hopefully in the very near future.  

Also a big thank you to Todd Hitzeroth N6ZXJ who lent me this laptop when mine lost its had drive two days into this unexpected "forced vacation" and to Dave Booth, KC6WFS, who is repairing the machine with its clickety-clacking drive.

Last, but by no means least, my sincere thank you to all who have offer your prayers and e-mailed and/or called with your get well wishes.  All are very much appreciated.  

Keep an eye on the ARNewsline website and Facebook page for the latest updates.
