End of Year Updates
- TRI-ATV WEBSITE ABOUT TO PASS TEN THOUSAND HITS:
The counter on the web page for Triangle ATV Association is just about
to pass its ten thousandth hit. That's almost a thousand hits since we
reached the 9,000 mark on July 1st of 2009. As of today, it's showing
a count of 9,978, and it's virtually assured to go over 10,000 by the
end of the year if not sooner. Evidently, some people somewhere are
still interested in ham TV, and why not? If you've not checked out our
page lately, take a look! It's at:
While you're there, go to the bottom, just above the graphic of Mr Spock
and click on the link to "rate this site" on dxzone.com to vote on what
you think about it. A lot of effort has gone into making our site
relevant and more modern. It is well known that some of the content on
the page concerning Triangle ATV Association goals, etc., needs
updating, so try not to let that interefere with your appraisal of the page.
ATV PHOTOS DESIRED:
If you have any photos of your ATV station or "screen shots" of
significant ATV contacts you've made, send them in so they can be added
to the page. We have a good assortment of artwork from the commercial
side of television, but almost nothing from the amateur side of it, and
we'd like to do something about that.
A TRIANGLE ATV ASSOCIATION CLUB MEETING IN JANUARY?
How about the possibility of a Triangle ATV Association club meeting,
perhaps on Thursday, January 14th? It could be held somewhere in
Research Triangle Park so as to inconvenience everybody equally, maybe
at a place where food could be had. Send in some feedback about this!
It would be good to get together and decide the direction of the
organization for 2010, and to review our assets and our goals.
A NEW ATV REPEATER IN THE RALEIGH AREA SOON?
I'm told that Matt Harris KD4PBS is in the equipment acquisition stage
of setting up a 70 cm analog TV repeater somewhere in the greater
Raleigh area. It would be great to have another ATV repeater on the air
in our area. If there's anything you can think of that might help Matt
out, contact him and offer to lend a hand.
HAVE A GOOD HOLIDAY!
We wish all of you the most blessed Christmas season and hope to see you
some time next year "on the air." A picture's worth a thousand words
