New Gazette Editor Sought

Our current editor is looking for someone to take his place and is willing to train and assist the new applicant in how the Gazette is produced. Someone with prior graphic or desk-top publishing experience would be ideal, but a "newbie" could do the job with some instruction and a bit of initial guidance. We would prefer a SCARS member, as some understanding of antique radios is essential. Please contact Jim Ryan for details.
