A quick stop by the PO box this morning on the way to work resulted in
the arrival of the April issue of QST.

A possible contester's worst nightmare is in the making - a dedicated
sub-band for SSTV; or worse yet, more SS signals all over the bands.  A
SSTV contest may be here in the near future.  Check out the latest
Kenwood ad information below.

power supplies - 25 and 45 amp switching units and a conventional 30 amp
adjustable voltage unit.  SGC has a new small HF SSB rig, the SG-2020. 
Back issues of QST are now available back to 1930 on CD-ROMs.  And on
back cover, the new Kenwood VC-H1 Visual Communicator (a handheld SSTV
transceiver unit that connects to your rig).

The CQ WPX SSB is only 9 days away!

73 and good reading,
