This has been a topic for the last couple meetings, so hopefully it isn't too big of surprise, but the WWARA website has been completely updated/replaced. (https://www.wwara.org) The original site was created using Microsoft Frontpage and had comments going back to 1997, so needless to say it was time for an upgrade.

The new site is hosted on a modern CMS and you don't need to be able to manually update HTML/PHP code to post things now. I flipped over to the new site a couple weeks ago, but I needed todo some 'plumbing' work to get the nightly updated coordination listings to publish correctly. I was able to get all that working on Friday.

Please let me know if there is anything missing, you find a spelling error or any other mistakes. I really want to thank Rob-NR3O for helping migrate a lot of the content over.

Larry/Brian,
I have to ask, on all three of these renewals you are listing 150 watts for repeater output. Per the instructions on the application (pg4) then that would be 150 watts out of the duplexer into the line. That seems to me to be a bit on the high side by several dB at least. Can you validate those values please?

With the current COVID19 situation, the board has decided to move the upcoming quarterly meeting online. In the last couple meetings there has been discussions about shifting the meetings around the state to allow and/or encourage more people to participate, so moving the meeting completely online is a natural next step. Many clubs in the area have been using the Zoom conferencing product and Scott-N7SS has been nice enough to setup a bridge for the meeting next Saturday. (The details are below) If you are not familiar with Zoom, it provides a video conferencing solution, with clients for all major computer platforms. It also supports several smart phones/tablets from Apple or Android, with dial-in phone numbers as the a fall back.

Since this will be the first time holding the meeting online, I am sure there will be some growing pains, so please be understanding.
