Hi David, Don,

Thanks for inviting me to present at last Monday’s meeting. It was good to see some old friends and meet some new ones. Here are the Web links I promised:

  • My QRPworks products:
  • Bioenno Power batteries:

Since I’m local, there are no shipping charges for our QRPworks products. The Web Store automatically adds it, but I’ll refund them.

Tnx & 73,
Shel KF0UR
