There comes a time and place in life when everything starts to change, and
over the last several months. Several things have changed and continue to
change daily.  So like anything thing else, it is good to have change which
I really don't mind in the first place. So one thing that I'm looking at
doing right now is stepping down as the Chairman of the Tri-State APRS
Working Group which I have been the chairman since the 1999 time frame. If
anyone is interested in taken over the responsibility of the group send me a
private e-mail. And I think it is time for a change and I need a break. It
always nice to have fresh ideas and leadership to lead the group into the
