"I am writing to suggest that you join with me and other owners of the Yaesu FT-101 in an informal association which we might call the Fox-Tango Group. It would serve as a sort of benevolent, protective, mutual aid and perhaps social club, essentially for the purpose of interchanging information, ideas, experiences and problems."
These were the words of Milton Lowens (N4ML), when he started the Fox Tango Club in 1972, which was dedicated to the exchange of information about the Yaesu FT-101 amateur radio transceiver. The club published the FT Newsletter from 1972 until 1985. I was a member of the Fox Tango Group from 1977 to 1985. I still remember that I could hardly wait to receive each month's issue of the Fox Tango Newsletter jam packed with modifications and user suggestions for my beloved FT-101.
In an effort to keep the Fox Tango flame burning and continue the interchange of information to enhance the effectiveness of these rigs I invite you to join the FT-817 Fox Tango Club at Yahoo Groups.
Topics of discussion will cover the FT-817 and FT-817ND. Please visit the Fox Tango Web Page at Foxtango.org, also visit our main group at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/FoxTango/.
Organized 1971 By and For Owners of Yaesu Equipment.
