Seeing Impaired?
A blind ECARS member recently pointed out that the 'Jaws' web page reader, that he used to navigate the ECARS website, would not read the drop down menus of the main menu bar, reducing his ability to get to all areas on the website.    Accordingly, we have implemented a secondary menu system that is readable by the Jaws web page reader.  This secondary menu is accessed by clicking on the 'Sight Impaired' menu option above.  1/6.2017
When Did You 1st Operate ECARS?
ECARS has nearly 50 years of operating history, going back to 1968.  Who can demonstrate that they worked, or were members of, ECARS back in the "good old days"?  Rick, K3IW, has made an impressive claim of QSOs back to 1969 Jeff, K2CGH, has ECARS QSL cards from 1972/73 when serving as an NCS in his mid-teens after school.   Who else has old history with ECARS?
