Here's a handy checklist for making a website suitable for amateur radio use.
- Make sure you have lots of animated gif's
- Make sure you have a midi file (or some other obnoxious noise) playing in the background
- Flashing text says "this is important" - use it as much as possible.
- blue, yellow, grey, black and cyan go together - its true!
- Black with dark blue text makes for an easy to read website - kinda like sorting through a cw pileup minus the narrow filter - but this time its all digital! If people can't read it they don't deserve to be hams anyhow.
You forgot that the entire page should be '.'s and '-'s ! Real HAM's always use morse.

I did visit a few sites where they had midi file playing morse code - usually of their dogs name, or their callsign over and over and over.
Its enough to drive anyone nuts - I guess maybe some people don't visit their own sites after they make them?
Not to mention use of the "es" such as "Here is a photo of the XYL es harmonics, HIHI"
How stupid a term, makes no sense at all even with a fertile imagination! The whole "CW use as/in English language" doesn't make you look intelligent or funny, but just the opposite.
These terms surely include:
(a few others that escape me right now)
The whole MIDI file thing is the reason why I MUTE the sound 99% of the time on my machines. Unless I am listening to some sort of real or REAL audio, it is always off. Now I know exactly why I do when visiting moronic ham sites!
Well, making a webpage, visit my super-site, RM will agree with me, it's No. 1.
Ya see, time and effort brings it all into play.
Put another hit on the counter of the page and another hit on qrz.com w7sns, it's just wonderful.
It sure is a Super Site!
I love Schmedley!

Don't forget the 3 1/2 megabyte club logo jpeg that chokes down even the best of dial-up connections (thank you DSL!
