The Handiham World for 01 April 2008

Welcome to Handiham World!

Last week we told you about a ham radio operator making his way across the Pacific from Hawaii to Japan in a wave-powered boat.

The skipper is Kenichi Horie, age 69, and we now know his callsign thanks to John, G0DPC. It is JR3JJE. Let us know if your hear or work JR3JJE.

John also writes:

"Hi Pat, I've recently added your Handiham audio to HamInfoBar. In case you've not come across HamInfoBar, it is a free browser toolbar that specializes information for radio hams and SWLs. Potentially, this means that your broadcasts are readily available to thousands of hams around the world who have downloaded this free toolbar. Plus, I have included a link to your site. Perhaps some folks will discover your broadcasts for the first time. Please feel free to check out the HamInfoBar website, which gives full details. If you feel this will benefit your readers and listeners, kindly pass this info on - perhaps you would consider putting a link to HamInfoBar on your links page as well."

Thanks to John for this great resource! here's our web story on the Info Bar:
