EPCOT 30th Anniversary - October 6-7, 2012 - Participated

I am in the process of rewriting a bunch of code on the website in order to clean up the code and make it easier to manage. If you should experience any downtime or errors please wait a few minutes and then try to load the website again. I will post a notification as soon as I am done. Thanks in advance for your patience and understanding.

Example: After cleaning and rewriting the code, here are the Before and After numbers for lines of code that are used to display the next dinner information shown on the left.

Next Dinner Info Code
Before: 254 Lines
After: 110 Lines

As you can see the new code still displays the same data and format. If I were to remove all the coding comments I could cut the number of lines of code back to about 100. In case you were wondering, the website is written using a combination of HTML, PHP and Javascript.

October 6th & 7th, 2012 - 30th Anniversary of EPCOT - 30 Years in 30 Hours!

Monday, October 1st, 2012 marked the 30th Anniversary of the EPCOT at Walt Disney World.  To commemorate the anniversary, the Walt Disney World ham radio club D.E.A.R.S. operated  a Special Event station on 40, 20 and 10 meters.  The Special Event started at 10:00AM on Saturday and continued until 4:00PM on Sunday.  Some of the Sun Country Amateur Radio Society members were invited to take part in the special event.

The members of the Disney Emergency Amateur Radio Service welcomed us open arms and made us feel right at home. Thank You D.E.A.R.S.!!  We had a BLAST!!
