75 Meter Extra Class WAS Net

Website Donations

The Geratol Net has agreed to help pay for the Net’s website Domain name and WordPress Operating System each quarter of the year. Al AE2T has paid this for out of his own pocket for years and the Net decided it would be a good thing for the net to relieve Al of this burden. Kevin N1KL took over the maintenance and improvements from Al and Al has generously agreed to help Kevin with the Website maintenance and features. With that being said Sandy and I have taken responsibility of paying Al and it was decided to ask for donations to achieve this goal each quarter. We have received a $20.00 donation from KJ8V/KJ8W and a $5.00 dollar donation from W4WLF so far. So if ya have an extra buck please send it to me and if it’s a check make it payable to Dave Ertel and we will get the funds to Al. Even if we don’t get enough Sandy and I will pay Al. If we get more than the $60.00 Sandy will keep it in a fund for the future payment for the Website. If you hear Kevin on please thank him for all of the work he has put into the improving the Website. Thanks in advance for your help. Dave KJ8V

    I tried to post an explanation of the costs of the web site on the Yahoo page. I don’t see it, though, so it might not have worked, or needs approval, or something.
    I wanted to outline what it costs and I think the net members have the right to know, but to keep things short, $60 is more like an annual amount.
    Please don’t worry about drumming up money. I don’t need that much.
    Short take is the entire website costs me about $50 a quarter. But I host a number of sites on it besides the Geratol Net.
    The domain name ( costs $15 per year.
    Dave, you sent me a check back in November. Let’s wait a while before the next one!
