SARA Web Site Details:

  • Design concepts used on our site lead to: Your Internet S-E-C-U-R-I-T-Y ~ know where you are and where you are linking to at all times! It is your responsibility to stay S-A-F-E !!

  • Three processes we use on the 'W8QQQ Web Site: "Hover" over any link on our site to see a note on where the link is going to go. If you are anywhere on our site links, there will be pop up 'note' showing you the target. Internal Link(s) ~ we consider safe! (we control all those paths).External Link(s) ~ "Someone else" is in control of the linking path - do you trust them? We try to check them out periodically, but we have about 2,000 of them... actually they control their changes and take over the security of your surfing. Some care is required to remain secure!

We strive for our web site to provide a good "launching point" for a wide area of ham knowledge and information for the use by radio amateurs - for both our club members and visitors. The concepts of the site design and operation may be of use to someone working on a web site. We believe if all sites followed these concepts there would be less spam and security risks to all users - enjoy. 'Proper' linking protocols assists in all web security. Let the user decide to follow those links or not (greatly reduces 'false' links to undesired links).

Please drop us a comment on your usage of the data provided and the ease of use, or any mistakes on our site. We are open to hints on adding/removing information. It is a difficult task keeping the entire site accurate and up to date, so all feedback is appreciated. Remember this is our hobby and to have fun. 73's - - - the SARA team.

Internet Learning Information:

What makes the internet such a great place for an individual to learn? Is it that the areas covered are unlimited? It is very vast and details are out there for you to learn and use on just about any topic. The real challenge is for you to quickly find correct current details and know that you have a 'good' resource. My findings is that the "WiKi" methods are GREAT! So you ask: "What is a "Wiki"? Read this page {carefully} for a great beginning on internet learning: What is 'Wiki'?. In general it is 'community driven information source' that is constantly being corrected and updated by the internet community. In my opinion it is the best place to start. The 'Wiki' is in a sense managed by the same group that gives us 'Wikipedia' but has several other areas you should be aware of and use. It is a huge advantage for a teacher to use in instruction. Oh, and it is always 'FREE'.

The internet can be a safe and powerful tool for you to use. However, there are people out there that wish to steal information and desire to actually hurt you - so please be very careful.
