Spring must be just around the corner because the free March issue of WRO
is now posted to the web for your reading pleasure. All you have to do is
go to the CQ home page at . While you're
on the web page, check out the highlights of the CQ magazine and
bookstore. CQ is available on many newsstands or you may subscribe through
the website.

To find WRO, click on the WorldRadio Online box on the left side of the page.

That will take you to the WorldRadio Online welcome page, where you will
have several options for viewing/downloading the issue.

You can download the entire magazine by clicking on the photo of the
cover. If you have a slower connection, such as dial-up, you may want to
click on the Table of Contents page and download it in sections.

You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader. If you do not have it, scroll to the
bottom of the WorldRadio Online welcome page and in the bottom left
corner, you will find a link to a free download.

Also on the WorldRadio Online page are links to the archives. You can
download back issues (February 2009 - February 2010). You will also find a
link to tips for downloading in case you're having problems.

March Issue Highlights
If you have college-bound hams in your family, you will want to pay
special attention to the March WRO issue. It details the Foundation for
Amateur Radio (FAR) scholarships that are available for 2010. Some of the
scholarships have residency requirements or "course of study"
requirements, but most of them are very liberal. The scholarships can be
as high as $5,000, and I don't need to remind you how expensive it can be
to put kids through college. It doesn't cost anything to apply, so I
recommend giving it a shot. The application deadline is in March, so don't
put it off.

Of course, there are your regular favorites, including Aerials by Krusty
Ole Kurt, Rules and Regs, Trail-Friendly Radio, EmComm, Propagation, YLs
and more.

This is my last edition of WRO as editor. I enjoyed being a part of your
ham life, both as a columnist and an editor. We've become like a family
and I am going to miss that. I'll be at Hamvention ® in May, so stop by
the FISTS booth and say hello! My direct email is if you'd
like to drop me a note.

If you have comments about WRO, please don't hit the reply button for this
email. This is sent by an automated service and your email probably won't
be read. Send your comments to the new editor, Richard Fisher, KI6SN at

73 88 33,
Nancy WZ8C
Former WorldRadio Online Editor

P.S. For those who don't know - '33' is like '73', but only used between
women hams. Do a search on "33 Clara YLRL" and you'll find a poem
explaining it.
