            We thought your ham radio club membership would be interested in learning
        about Global 24 Radio.

        Global 24 Radio (htttp://www.global24radio.com) will be broadcasting on
        shortwave on 9395 kHz from WRMI in Okeechobee, Florida beginning on
        November 1.

        Read (and please share with your members) this press release:

        http://tinyurl.com/l9ksn9c

        We will feature several programs about shortwave listening, DXing and ham
        radio that will be of great interest to your members.

        Shortwave radio has long been an "Entry" point for the Amateur Radio hobby
        and we hope your club can help spread the word...

        Regards,
        Marcy Schlegel
        Director of Programming
