In DeSoto Parish there is a new group for amateur radio enthusiasts. To foster interest and continuing participation in amateur (HAM) radio by Legion members, American Legion LA Post 157 has established the *TALARC* Conference channel using EchoLink.
The post said this is a FREE service available to licensed radio operators. It can support up to 500 simultaneous connections.
For more information about this program and the mission of The American Legion, contact Mark Armstrong WB5VDG or visit http://www.TALARC.org.
