Thumbs up Qrz.com

I sure like the way QRZ.COM has changed their call sign lookup. Search a call now and it will give you the beam heading, distance and map the location. Very nice.

It will give you the e-mail address. You just have to be logged in, and hover over it.

I really like the new set up, too.

Its a great site. I use it all the time. Used a guys station one time that as you entered the call sign into the log, it looked up his name and qth with beam headings etc. Then asked you if you wanted to move the beam... etc.. I have never had a big station like that but it sure is nice... 73... Mark

Having a URL link back to Open Roads Radio in your bio or as your web page (especially if you don't have a web page anyway) is an excellent way to promote our forum.

Looked up your call on QRZ and read your bio John. Very nice, enjoyed it.

Have you considered putting a signature on your ORR posts. Need to put the pic of your bus in there. That's a nice looking machine. I saw it on QRZ and it reminded me. Just my thoughts but I enjoy seing what the different members travel in and associate it to them. Sort of like being in a campground.

Hope all had a Merry Christmas. It was 85 degrees on Christmas Day here at home.

QRZ has a new Forum category "HAM MADE GEAR" available for a Ham with a product fully made by him, to advertise his product on.
Just started a few days ago, already looks promising.

See the tow hitch antenna mast holder.
