I just talked with Jim Coleman AI5B, our Louisiana Section Emergency
Coordinator, earlier today (Wednesday) and want to bring you up to date
on his progress.  As many of you know Jim underwent quadruple bypass
heart surgery early last week.  He was released from the hospital late
Monday afternoon of this week and is doing and feeling great.  His
doctor said that there was no heart muscle damage and everything went
smoothly with the surgery.

Jim wishes to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers and that he
should be almost back up to speed in a few weeks.  He is very happy to
be home again and is looking forward to trying to make it to the
Louisiana Section Convention in Monroe next month (with his doctor's
permission).

He may need to hitch a ride as he cannot drive for a while so if anyone
from SELA is planning to come to Monroe it would be great if you would
offer him a ride.

We continue to pray for Jim's complete recovery!

Herman,

My wife and I really enjoyed the Rayne Hamfest this past weekend and
met many hams from AARA.  The AMSAT forum and fox hunt events
are remarkable.

As far as I know an invitation was mailed to your club for the
annual Hot Dog Social from Piney Hills Amateur Radio Assn.
in Ruston, La.

Everyone is invited and welcome.  It is always a lot of fun.  There
is no cost for the hotdog and burgers but there is a charge for
the crawfish.

This year if all goes well, The La. Tech. University ARC -- W5HGT,
plans to launch a high altitude balloon at this event to collect WX
data and use telemetry and APRS data coming from the balloon's
ascension.  It's a lot of fun.

I've included a flyer if you would want to post some of the
information on your website.

Thanks for your time,
'73 from WD5GBD
