Want to help build eHam.net?
eHam.net was created as a fun project by four hams from different
corners of the USA. All have different areas of expertise and
background experience. Their goal was to provide the tools
necessary for a first-class amateur radio community to thrive. They
would like to see the site run by motivated individuals that are
interested in providing the ham community with a place to meet and
interact on the Internet.
The eHam.net team is looking for some volunteers who
would be interested in the following roles on the site:
Data Miners and Specialists
We have a need for some folks who'd like to do a little web
surfing. Actually, anyone can assist us in this regard by
entering new links or Calendar events as they find them and many folks
do just that. However, we'd like to add some "official" eham team
members - folks that we can count on to "work" regularly for the site -
this is where, I hope, you come in.
eHAM needs some Calendar Data Miners - folks to scour the
Internet and magazines looking for Calendar events like contest dates,
hamfests, club meetings, etc.
We also need some Links Data Miners - folks to scour the
Internet, looking for amateur radio-related web sites (individual,
commercial, technical, clubs, etc.) to add to our database of Links.
We'd also like some Articles Data Miners - folks to scour the
Internet, looking for suitable technical, humor, operating, etc.,
material that we could reprint on eHAM. They would also be expected
to get the author's permission, of course.
Specialists - Hams with a passion for a special sub-hobby like
contesting, RTTY, EME, digital modes, QRP, space communications,
antenna design, 160meters, UHF, etc., are also welcome
to join and populate our various applications (links, forums, calendar,
articles, etc.) with pertinent information.
These jobs require a little time (a few hours a week is fine) and a
tenacity for clicking on links, running search engines, etc. When you
find something you would then come to eHAM and enter it
using our existing forms. No programming or HTML is necessary.
Final approval for all items will rest with the applications'
managers. In this regard it is important that the data be complete
and entered cleanly (format, spelling, etc.) to ease the burden
on the applications' managers.
Most of the applications on the eHam.net site require some kind of
supervision or person in charge. All the manager positions require very
little (if any) knowledge of HTML. Our administration programs allow
just about anyone to manage the applications from anywhere in the world
through a web browser. All of our applications come
with email notifications of new submissions.
We are not currently looking for any managers. If you feel you'd like to help
in this regard, please feel free to contact us and we surely can find a way to utilize your help.
