Changes & Additions

There are some changes to the site, mainly the menu bar, and some additions to the image galleries. The menu bar was getting out of control so some pages have been moved to a ‘More’ sub menu. We’ve also begun to add images from field days. These are both club events & images from members own /P field days. Have a look in the image galleries drop down menu. Clearly this is just the beginning, they’ll increase in number as we add images.

The club intends to take part in a number of competitions this year so there will be images from all of those events as the year progresses.

A wee note to members, if you have images from past events then get them to Dougie MM6KNR and he’ll get them on the site.


New Forum & Conditions info

For a few reasons, including software usability issues & a lack of anti-spam measures, I’ve decided to change the forum software from Vanilla Forums to myBB forums.

Unfortunately I couldn’t get the old forum information to migrate to the new set up, however, because the forum was very much in its infancy this isn’t really too much of an issue, although I must apologise to Alan 2M0EWY, who had posted more than anyone.

I’m going to shut the old forum down later today and would ask all club members to sign up to the new one.

Go to the new page to sign up, as with the old one I’ll have to approve you before you can post but that shouldn’t take too long.

I’ve also added some forum sections to the list, if you want anything specific added then let me know and I’ll do it.

You may also notice that I’ve put a Solar, HF & VHF conditions widget in the blog sidebar, is this useful or not? Let me know. I’m looking at ways to get the RSGB conditions predictions onto the site but no luck yet.

Welcome to the GDARC website

Welcome to the new site for the Glenrothes & District Amateur Radio Club. The site is full of information about who we are and when we meet. There’s also a link in the menu bar to the new Forums which we hope you’ll join and get involved in. You don’t have to be a member of our club to use the forums, or even be in the UK, however, we’d prefer you to be a licensed Amateur wherever you may be from.

If you are not a licence holder, get in touch and we can see about changing that. Some of our members run courses to help people pass the various exams, you can contact us through the site or come along to a meeting.
