The scanning of past RF Newsletters is now complete through 1973. That's over 43 years folks! We are missing some back issues, especially the earlier years. If you have some RF's lying around see if they have been scanned and are complete (sometimes pages are missing). Contact the club if you have anything that we are still missing. Missing issues are shown in red and if the issue date looks dimmed out (pre 1973) we just haven't scanned it yet. - Bob AF6C.
