After some searching, I discovered that at least at one time, a site 
existed that was w5bm.com.  I tried typing in different variations into 
my browser (w5bm.com,  www.w5bm.com, http://w5bm.com) but no server 
could be found on anything.

I don't know if they just don't have power down there, yet, or... if 
they don't have internet access back yet... if he was paying for a 
co-location site or was hosting his own domain... and I certainly havn't 
heard him on the air, in a number of years (unfortunatly - Lou is a 
great and interesting guy to talk with).

I know of some hams down there in that area (Crowley, Abbeville, Kaplan, 
Jennings) some are back on the air - some are trying to rebuild 
antennas.  I hope to count Lou among the survivors.

Please, Brian, let us know what you find.

73 = Best Regards,
