bunch of weblogs out there", he says. "I set up this website as an effort  to
offer a comprehensive directory of ham radio related weblogs, but to  achieve
this goal I need the help  of the amateur  radio community. So  if you are  a
blog user, please submit your site to the webdirectory". FAQs can be found at

some pile has accumulated  in Germany. Please  be patient as  he will not  be
