November TCN Fundraiser
It's time for my second TCN fundraiser of 2012. Each May and November I ask for your support for the Transportation Communications Newsletter. That support can come in several ways, including monetary donations, the purchase of ads and voice services and simply letting others know about the TCN. The TCN has been around since 1998 and just last month I started a new service that I hope to grow called "Transportation Radio." TR allows me to do reporting on transportation news stories in a long-form audio format. Your financial support will allow this service to grow. The reports have not only appeared in the TCN but in other transportation newsletters I produce. I welcome your ideas and support. Please see below on how to contact me and how to make a contribution.
