chance to show off your ham shack. Whether simple and plain, big and
fancy, vintage equipment, or filled with junque, submit digital
pictures of your ham shack to Tim, KD8NOH. They can be emailed to
firstname.lastname@example.org or supply to him on other digital media. Tim would
like to make a slide show to display at Chili Dog Night.
