----------Of Special Interest---------

For Those of you who like to design your own antennas, Roy Lewallen, W7EL, the creator of the EZNEC Antenna
Design Program, is retiring at the end of the year. Since his business is a 'one horse' operation, he has decided
to make available his EZNEC(Pro/2) program FREE OF CHARGE beginning January 1, 2022.
There will be no further support for EZNEC beyond this year. EZNEC
[I have used version 5 of this program for over a decade, and it is highly accurate. A limited version
of this program has been included with the ARRL Antenna Book in the past.- W8LGX]
