HamOperator

Welcome to the new web site!

We’re doing a little digital remodeling and bringing up a new HamOperator.com with many new features and capabilities. This new platform should allow the site to look better on mobile devices, allow new types of content, and make it easier to keep up to date.

Should you be looking for something in the old web site, it is still available here: https://HamOperator.com/hamoperator/hamoperator.com.html

While the site is underconstruction, URLs to the various pages and resources may change. Anything in the wp.hamoperator.com domain will likely change.

Other Stuff
