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.
