	Guess I'll beat everybody to the punch!  I've got a new home page.  It
isn't finished yet, but it can be seen at so drop by!

I wanted to tell everyone about a very useful
log conversion utility that KA5WSS has written.
It is shareware and can be found on the TR-Log
web page at:

It converts CT/TR/NA/WRTC files to each other.
It also will convert them into dbase formats
so you can dump your logs into a spreadsheet
and do all sorts of graphs and stuff.
