I want to thank everyone who had some input regarding beacons that 
needed updating in the WZ1V beacon database. We all owe Ron a big thank 
you for maintaining this list for so many years. Ron can you pse PM me 
to let me know you got this mail?

Included in this e-mail is an attachment from Al, W5LUA that lists 
details of beacons in the DFW area.

I do not think it is unreasonable to ask that beacon owners notify Ron 
every year or two to let him know that the beacon(s) they own are still 
operational with correct information. It is up to Ron but if it were me 
maintaining the list and I did not hear from a beacon owner after 
several years I would scratch the entry from the list.

I will also say I am in favor for a new column be added for the date 
when the beacon information was last revised. If not known then that 
entry spot would just be blank.

Here is the information I was given (in no particular order).....if you 
see an error or a beacon that needs to be added or deleted please let 
Ron know directly rather than letting me know.

I am still not clear of the status of several beacons in Illinois with 
the fall of the K9KL tower and which beacons will be put back up and if 
so where. To the ops in Illinois please send any updates or status 
reports to Ron so we all know (and also update your entries in RS.COM) !

Thanks to Kevin, Hugh, Zack and others who brought up the subject in the 
1st place and got this ball rolling. 73
