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 Yaesu guys might like to review some of your Yaesu
gear in our Product Reviews area or make a chat room called "Yaesu" to
discuss things real time.

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 practice exams, 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
a test and see your graded answers immediately.

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

8) Propagation - Why wait for WWV when you can get up to the minute data
from NOAA.

9) Survey - Answer the question of the day.

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

11) eHam Detective - Search ALL ham radio mailing list archives on the

12) Ham Spotlight - Each view of the home page includes a profile of
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.

Bill Fisher, W4AN
