Our friends at the ARKAN club have set up an email distribution list for amateur radio operators in and around northwest Arkansas, from Ft. Smith to Joplin to Harrison. In addition, they are expanding their newsletter to cover ham radio events from all over the area, not just their club. Send them your news, event info, hamfest announcements, etc.
We think it's a great idea and an opportunity to "regionalize" (is that a word??) ham radio efforts in the area, regardless of club affiliation.
