John W8LWX and Joel KM4NOU have been working to make the transition to the new website. Here’s an update from John:
As I hope you know by now, I gave notice back in March 2018 that I would step back from my dual roles as scheduler and webmaster for the 7.272 Ragchew Net effective September 30, 2018. To aid in the transition, though, I’ve been keeping the old site alive and making the necessary adjustments on the website calendar to reflect day-to-day substitutions, as well as maintaining the newsletter mailing list, up to now.
Today is the day we’ll finally throw the big switch to decommission the old website and redirect all traffic to the new one, which will be run by our new webslave — er, sorry, I mean webmaster — KM4NOU, Joel. Within the next 24-48 hours, your browser should end up on the new site if you direct it to 72chew.net. Please note the following important details about this change:
It is not possible for me to respond individually to each message I’ve received thanking me for the 6+ years I’ve dedicated to the Chew as its scheduler and the 5+ years as webmaster. Suffice it to say that the number of such messages reflects the depth of understanding of the many hours of effort involved in creating and maintaining the website, keeping NCS slots staffed, and keeping up with schedule changes throughout those years, all begun as a labor of love and in the spirit with which Cincinnatus left his plow when called upon by his countrymen.
The plow is a bit rusty but it will be nice to get back to it. Special thanks to Ken and Joel for making this happen! Meanwhile, I’ll hope to continue to hear from y’all on Sundays, 10-11, on 7.272 MHz!
Our friends at NightWatch and the Brothers Net (K4ELO-Wayne and KB0OPR-Booper) got set up to produce T-shirts for those groups and were nice enough to think of us: “Hey, would you guys at the Chew like some shirts, too?” Our answer, without hesitation: Heck, yes!
To order, go to http://www.hamhandshake.net/shirts.php and fill in all the info there. Thank you, Booper and Wayne, for making this possible.
Prices: Sizes S, M, L, XL are $21.00. Sizes XXL and XXXL are $26.00 including shipping.
Wear it proudly at your next hamfest!
This is an example of the back of the shirt.
