This Week's Headlines

  • PSSI (Product Support Services, Inc.) has been a long-time advertiser in this newsletter. I didn't realize until this week, the wide variety of paging equipment that they can refurbish. They not only work on practically all types of one-way and two-way pagers, but also several types of infrastructure as well. As I put together their new advertisement in this issue, it brought back memories of many pagers, that I am sure, still play an important part in today's paging services. It certainly makes business sense to refurbish instead of replace.
