     These folks are to amateur radio what the AMA or the American Motorcyclist Association are to motorcycles. Join them, no excuses. You get a great magazine every month, they tell you about all upcoming events, test new equipment, there are stories about ham DXpeditions, (hamming from islands, exotic places, etc.), every month there are projects in the magazine to build. You can go online and buy fantastic books, etc. Great technical support too when you can't get an answer from the: "You Have Questions, We Have Blank Stares" store.  Join them, you'll not be sorry. You can also call them @ 800 326-3942 and they will send you information about becoming a ham. (Hey, if your already a ham give it to the kid next door and get him/her hooked on something with more of a future than walking the mall!) Curious about shortwave listening and ham radio in general?

Please check out this website. Its about an English lady Violette Szabo GC, who lost her husband in the war. She gave birth to their daughter and joined the SOE or Special Operations Executive during WWII. Among other achievements her call sign was GB2SZB. She was captured, only to be later shot by the Gestapo. Secret Agent Violette Szabo was the first lady to be awarded the George Cross. Posthumously awarded, her George Cross was given by the King to her four year old daughter. I personally hope the memory of this fine lady lives on to inspire future generations forever.

Here's a brilliant site for you. I met Dave, G4YTB years ago on 10mtrs. One day I heard a mobile station in England and I asked if he would go by G4YTB's QTH (house) and say hello for me as he stated he was only twenty minutes travel time away. (Was this luck or what!) Dave was outside his house and asked what the fellow wanted. He said: "I'm a radio amateur and I have a fellow in America, K4VE that wants to talk to you in my truck!" Surprised, Dave and this bloke ran upstairs to Dave's shack and we all shared a laugh. If you have never thought about amateur radio, give it a try. Make new memories that last a lifetime.
