ARRG Website Face Lift
After a very good run with the old website, it was time for some upgrades.
During February, the ARRG Electronic Communication Committee had discussion about the ARRG website. Our webmaster Evan Vander Stoep [KJ7BRE] was constantly finding outdated content on the old website along with having to fix outdated content found by others. Members had spoken about the ARRG website not being easy to navigate so it was decided to do a face lift for the entire website.
All of the HTML & CSS on this new site was handwritten by Evan Vander Stoep [KJ7BRE] throughout February and March. It was a very big project involving 50+ hours of work. We hope you all enjoy the new website!
There is no repeater news to report at this time.
