12/23/2010: Added more pictures and made Live Audio a menu selection. The feed is now working ok, but there is still some work to be done with the schedule. Also, rumor has it that Santa is dropping off a new Hustler 6BTV antenna !
If anyone has pictures from the 1997 and 1998 Annual Meets, please send them to me - those are the only years that are still missing from the galleries.
Merry Christmas All !

11/25/2010: Added On-Line Chat, Twitter and other functions to the Live Audio Feed page. This will allow those of you without Transmit/Receive capability to listen to the 3985 khz AM net, and to participate in real time by logging into the CHAT function. We're still expecting the Live Audio to be available the first weekend of December, and on-air testing should begin this weekend.

Work continues on the Live Audio feed for the Saturday night net. The antenna for this service was taken down a couple of weeks ago, but should be back up by the end of November. In the interim, you can listen to the Santa Paula air traffic advisory channel (daytime only). The link is in the General Information page.
10/26/1020: Added link to pictures from WW2 Airfields & Radar Stations. Many galleries here show comm gear, the GEE radar is pretty cool.
10/19/2010: Added Live Audio Streaming capability to the webserver. We will eventually use this to webcast the Saturday Night MRCG-West AM Net and other audio feeds of interest. ( Click here for the request line.) Since we don't have a HF receiver or antenna at the web farm yet, we've got a VHF set tuned to various SoCal air traffic control frequencies. For initial testing, you can get to the Live Feed from the Information Menu / General Information - it's in the section about the Saturday AM net.
10/15/2010: Added streaming video capability to the webserver. The Galleries-Movie Page has been updated with new videos. Please let me know if you run into a problem viewing videos... we're making some adjustments in the blind because we can't test everything from here...
