You still have time to sign up for the Big Island Amateur Radio Club’s new QTH.NET Listserve. According to coordinator Les Hittner, “The main advantage of using such a listserve is that you do not have to individually maintain a list of club-member email addresses in order to enter into important conversations related to club operations.”  Another advantage of using this program is that “The listserve provides a secure means of sending club email.”  To sign up for the QTH.NET Listserve, contact Les Hittner (K0BAD) at lhittner@hbci.com.
