Welcome to the New Ham Partner Web page, a series of continuing articles for amateur radio newsletters by Gerry Crenshaw, WD4BIS.
This column was started for the Garland Amateur Radio Club newsletter when the influx of new NO-Code technicians started to ask questions on the local repeater that many of older hams had struggled with 20 years ago. These articles deal with both technical and non-technical subjects and address many questions raised by the the newer membership.
The page was started by a chance comment from my wife (Janet Crenshaw, WB9ZPH) who noted that many a past club she had belonged to would have traded the club HF rig for a good source of articles in their newsletters.
These articles are copyrighted, but may be used in club newsletters without requiring prior permission as long as they remain unmodified. However, please do send me an E-mail telling me when and where they were published. I would also appreciate a copy of the newsletter that one of my articles appear in. Otherwise I will assume that these are not useful to others and I will discontinue adding new articles to this page.
As a hedge against writers block, if someone has an idea for an article, would you send that to me as well.
