  BOATERS, SAILORS, AND RV'ERS  

I am happy to talk with you on the phone to help plan your upcoming adventure with ham radio onboard.  I am available Monday through Thursday, 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM, California time, at 714/549-5000.  THIS IS A FREE SERVICE!  I have quite a library of past magazine articles on specific technical areas aboard boats and in RVs, and I am happy to share these articles with you once I better understand your upcoming travel plans.  Fifteen to 20 minutes is the normal time for this free service, and I always look forward to hearing from my students during the day on the phone.  Due to the volume of e-mail I receive from students throughout the world, phoning home is a quicker way to get started with your mobile communications plan.
