This just in ...

In talking with Robert Sudock, WB6FDF, we realized that this newscast marks the 35th anniversary of the Amateur Radio Newsline.  I find it hard to believe that we have survived all of these years and that we are as fervent about what we do today as we were when Jim Hendershot, WA6VQP, and I produced that very first newscast -- then known as the Westlink Amateur Radio news -- some 1,820 weeks ago.  So from the bottom of my heart, I want to thank all of you who, over the years, have been a part of the all-volunteer team that has dedicated itself to bringing these newscasts to air.  Also, to all of you in our vast world-wide audience who have so graciouslly supported our efforts these many years.  And the promise we make is to once again commit ourselves to continue to bring you the news of amateur radio and personal communications.  Also to do our very best to keep improving or air product as we proceed into the weeks, months and years ahead.  Thank you all for being a part of the Amateur Radio Newsline family.
