From the Editor

Happy Easter to all, Spring is here, though as I write this it’s supposed to snow Friday, but Spring should be here soon.  So in this edition we have a couple of member profiles to share, a part 2 on Ray Buchicchio’s antenna project, and an article on the BITX40 transceiver kit.

Enjoy this months edition of the RHG and please if you have something to share please send it to me K9KQX.
