Hey guys.  I'de like to introduce you to a project we have been working on
for the past couple of months.  When you get time, please check out
www.eham.net .  You TenTec folks might be interested in the product
reviews as well as the chat.  You can create a room called 'TenTec' and
then meet other people with the same interest in the chat area.  

Amateur Radio finally has it's community site in eHam.net.  On September
1, 1999, eHam.net opened it's doors at http://www.eHam.net.  eHam.net can
best be described as a community of ham radio operators from all over the
world.  These ham radio operators share ideas through chat, contribute
news articles, buy & sell, take practiceexams, get propagation
information, DX spotting, and a variety of other applications designed for

eHam.net Features (version 1.0)

1) Callbook - More than just the FCC data, it also includes interesting
personal notes submitted by each person.

2) DX Spots - Spots from around the world with one click access to QSL
manager and callbook info.

3) Classifieds - Buy and sell your ham gear here (it's free!)

4) Ham News - Latest ham radio news with an opportunity to post your
comments on each story.

5) Chat - Chat with hams around the world.  Hold club meetings.  Meet
people here for on air schedules.

6) Ham Exams - Exams automatically generated from the FCC test pool.  Take

7) QSL Managers - Find the fastest way to get the cards you need.

10) Speak Out - A lively editorial forum for comment on ham radio topics.

someone from the ham radio world.  Every time the home page is refreshed,
the spotlight changes.

13) Links - On every page of the site you can type in a keyword to search.
The site has over 2500 different ham radio links already.  By far the
biggest and best colletion of ham links on the Internet.  We also have a
rating system for each link entered.  The eHam.net community can rate any
link from 1 to 5 stars!

14) Friends Remembered - A place to remember SK friends.  It occured to us
that a callsign listing in the pages of QST magazine just wasn't enough.

15) Product Reviews - Review any ham product you own or come here to read
reviews about products you are considering buying.  I know a couple of
companies that will hate us for putting this one up!

73 & thanks for your time & consideration.
