FRIDAY - JUNE 7, 2002

Dear Friends and wireless professionals,

I have some interesting news for you this week, but first my regular disclaimer:

This is my weekly newsletter about Wireless Data and Radio Paging. You are receiving this message because you have either communicated with me in the past about a wireless topic, or your address was included in another e-mail that I received. This is not a SPAM. If you have received this message in error, and you are not interested in these topics, please click here, then click on "send" and you will be promptly removed from the mailing list.

Please feel free to forward this to anyone else who might be interested. Any e-mail addresses sent to me, to add to my list, would be sincerely appreciated. The best news always comes in from you readers, so please let me know as soon as you hear something that is newsworthy.


The big news this week is that several of the regional paging industry trade associations are finally talking to each other about merging into one larger association that would deal with legislative and regulatory industry issues on a national level. There is an article about this in RCR Wireless News, although I don't think things have moved quite as far along as the article suggests. Evidently another meeting is scheduled for next week, so let's hope that the discussions go well. The whole paging industry is in crises right now, and I think most carriers have realized that their real competitors are not other paging companies. There would not be much of a paging industry today if the carriers had not jointly fought against unfair tariffs and regulations in the past. It is time to get together again. By the way, one of Webster's definitions of crisis is: "the turning point in the course of a disease, when it becomes clear whether a patient will recover of die." I have joined the AAPC at the urging of several of my friends.

Frank Dijker is interested in forming a Glenayre user's group to address common concerns about product support. Please contact Frank directly by clicking on his name, if you are interested.

The Paging Information Resource (my web site) layout has been changed a little, with new "rollover" navigation buttons. Check it out and let me know what you think.


The following is from my old friend, George Hunter in the Cayman Islands:

Dear Brad,

We would be grateful if you could circulate this ad and get some resumes coming my way.  This is an immediate opening.  The initial starting salary is CI $36,000.00 per year, which equates to excess of US $50,000.00 considering the exchange rate and that there are no personal income taxes in the Cayman Islands.

Thank you for your help.

I am still looking for a real job. If you hear of anyone that might be in need of my talents, please direct them to my job search site. Jerry Vargas, one of the best paging engineers in the business, is also available. These last two underlined links for the job search didn't work correctly in last week's newsletter, but they should be working now. Thanks to Frank Leon for the feedback.
