Started May 15, 2000 (by Paul Davidson, VE3UUM). Last update July 7, 2005 (by Thomas Frey, HB9SKA)

I have found that many Amateurs have submitted information for the Ham/2 page but have the idea that they are the only Amateurs that use OS/2. This list is here to disprove this idea.

If you would like to be on the list, send an e-mail with your name, callsign, version of OS/2 that you use along with a short comment and I will post your info here. Please note that because of privacy concerns, I will only post E-mail addresses if you explicitly ask me to do so. Also added on May 21, 2000 a line for your AX.25 packet address so if you want that posted please drop me a line.

Some users have noted a personal web page of interest, I have now tried to include those. If I missed anybody's page please send me another e-mail.

Stations are listed in order of entry to the web page. Oldest first, newest last.

Been using OS/2 since version 2.0, currently only one using it here at work (NT Network - WIN office), do have a WIN98 system here for those needs that can't be addressed by OS/2 (only 2% of the time for special database application apps). Although, I do display my WIN98 laptops screen on the OS/2 machine using VNC!
