Some potential bad news
I was walking out of my house to get in my car the other evening, when I heard my name being called - never a good thing.  It was my next-door neighbor who wanted to tell me that he will be removing an oak tree from his front yard. "Whew!" I thought to myse...

New Jersey QSO Party this weekend!
Not one of the biggies, by any means, but the Burlington County Amateur Radio Club has been working their tails off to get the NJ QSO Party back in the mainstream.  For years, there was a lack of participation; but due to their diligence, it seems to be mak...

Tree news
There is none. So, while talking with good friend Drew W2OU this evening, I have decided to be proactive.  The only thing that I am sure of, is that I'm not sure of anything at this point.  What I definitely know is that my neighbors want to remove the oak ...
