Don’t panic guys, QSL.NET is merging with QTH.COM this will be an even bigger and better site. I am approaching my 65th birthday and it is time to let younger minds continue. There will NO change in any list other than a small outage as we move the data from Delaware to Lansing, Michigan. Scott KA9FOX has an established track record with his QTH.COM site or I would not have gone this direction.
HNY to all and I will have the Collins 20V-2 on real soon.

After many years of great service to hams, Al Waller, K3TKJ, has decided to retire from the qthqth.net service. This is where ouAMRadiodioAMSwapwap) lists are based. I know he has surely spent many hours, and money out of his own pocket providing this service to hams. It would not have been possible for Al to do this had it not been for the donations (since everything was basically free) he also received from fellow hams using hwebspaceace, email lists, etc.
It appears that Al will be turning everything over to another person that I do not know. From the sound of it, things will continue as usual for our list. Speaking of, tAMRadiodio list has been going now for nearly 12 years!!
Just in case, I do plan to save a list of all our subscribers (fAMRadiodio aAMSwapwap) so that I can immediately start up my own list server. This is a worst case scenario, however, if I do have to setup a list server, please be prepared to consider a donation, as my web host only allows limited traffic on a list server, as is, without additional money.
If things with tqthqth.net server go as Al projects, I would like to ask (as we always have) that members please consider donating to the new list server owner.
Details from Al are at this link:
Al, if you read this, thank you for all the time, effort, and personal funding you have contributed for all these years. We will miss your personal service, but hope you fulfilldreams you could not see achieve while keeping all the man hours you kept while maintaining qth.net. Good luck and Happy New Year!
