New website “Tricks” and options

Since our move to a new Web Hosting service thanks to Tim Adams N6DLC, we have been adding LOTS of new “Plug-ins” and changing some of the look. hopefully it is getting easier to use.

Mark Arlotti KM6AHY has been adding dates to a new “events” section with a true Calendar style so it is easier to find some of our meeting dates, In the park functions, swap meets to attend etc.

We have added a new “Chatroom” that members frequent during our WG6OTA net Tuesday nights and K6AGF’s Sunday night Net. Sunday, March 1st we had a fun conversation that included Vic Corella KM6RWB that was in Utah visit his daughter and grandchild. Since he couldn’t “check-in” to the Net we kept him updated and got him a courtesy check-in.

We also added a “Forum” section, you can ask questions, share your latest projects, show off your latest purchase or “flee market find”.

We also now have a members section that you can sign in to and we are working on a separate files section that full members will access for Club roster, treasurers reports, Minutes from general and board meetings etc.

ARRL Audio news feed has been added, we are working on adding the ARRL news feed to the Blog. We have added a PDF reader to the newsletter page that allows newsletters to be read directly without downloading to a “off-page” PDF reader.

We do realize there will be mistakes made some functions won’t work as planned and adjustments will need to be made.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Creating an active lively website is a lot of work for a small group but a living, Breathing Site speaks to an Active Lively radio club.

We’ll see Ya’ll on the bands and here on the Website. ’73 Ken KC6WOK
