Donations...

Post by Alex » Tue Jan 02, 2007 9:56 pm

Since there have been some issues serving and keeping this site up... I've incurred around $200-$300 in costs between spare drives and shipping the system around.

If you would like to help keep the site up and running, every contribution counts.

If you do decide to help out - make sure you put your username in the donation so that I can credit you.

Daniel C - please send me a PM so that I can make sure you get credit where credit is due.

Thank for your time.

How does one donate?

Forgive me for being so dumb, but how would one donate to the operation of the board if he so desired? I've kind of looked around and see no explanation of how to do it.
I don't know much about 2-way radios but I'm over 50 and can't remember not having one around. Everything from Buddy and Citi-fone to Icom and Kenwood.

on the main page (http://www.radioinfoboard.com) there is a link to the paypal thing.

You can also click "The Radio Information Board" logo, and you'll see the link that way too...

I just scroll quickly down to the forums instead of reading everything and had just skipped right over it. :oops:

I could move it to a header - but I don't want to be annoying about it for obvious reasons.

I have had pretty much a no-charge host - and host for people that I know personally. They typically help fund repairs and other such stuff.

However, I live about ~400 miles from the server, and it's become somewhat unpractical to maintain reliably from so far away (it used to be on a desk behind me at work).

This right now will help move it to a better permanent home for at least the next 2 years.

Thanks in advance for people's support.
