Thanks to Tim KI6BGE, Bill N5ALO (now N5AB) and Bobby K5ALO for their donations. We're running out of space on the server, so we'll need to upgrade the service, which will, of course, increase the cost. Visit the Resonant Frequency website and click the Donate link. Or, click on the Amazon link to make your purchases, which also benefits the podcast.

Rant
In January, there was a test of the HAARP array in Alaska. Jerry E. Smith, a guest on the Paranormal Cafe radio show, believes amateur radio operators are now pawns of the government, as we were asked to listen to participate. Richard responds. (I could link to Jerry's website, but that would just serve to promote his "theories". If you're interested, Google is your friend. The episode is from January 24, 2008. -Ed.)
