With this issue of the Newsletter, we complete five years at the
Broadcasters' Desktop Resource. As the culmination of what we have been
doing since the late 1970s, we are pleased to know when one of more
features of the BDR meets your needs. A number of you have written to
say "thanks" - and that is always appreciated.
Of course, we could not do this without the support of our sponsors.
They, too, appreciate it when someone lets them know they saw their
banner ad on the BDR.
YUM YUM YUM!
This past weekend, I had the opportunity to attend the world famous
Vashon Island picnic and transmitter site crawl. Although I've been
invited in the past, this year I was determined to make it, and truly
enjoyed the Island, the historic transmitter sites, and the good food
and company at the picnic. SBE Chapter 16 is responsible for the entire
affair, and attracts a pretty large crowd. Look for some pictures and
commentary to be posted over the next week (the trip was some 3500 miles
total on the road in 8 days, so a few days will be needed to get
everything back up to speed).
