Carolina Radio Club New Site

I hope this will satisfy the needs of the club as it did take awhile for me to get the time to work on a site and get it onto something maintainable for anyone who wishes to help update it. If anyone has any issues with the new design let me know as I am still improving on it as we go. This is built using Jekyll and Github for hosting.


Key reasons for using this are:

  • Everything is a simple text file and can be edited in notepad. Does not require a editor or bulky software to edit.
  • Automatically formats everything appropriately as long as you use markdown and for reference: Markdown Cheat Sheet
  • Distributed maintenance via Github, no one has to be the owner of the server or content, everyone involved is.
  • Audit trail of who made changes last to the site and usually why, or at least a comment.

Thank you everyone for your patience,
