The next HamConnect updates will be out coming soon! We’ve been diligently working with the developers to build some great new site functions, all of which you will hear about shortly.
One of the goals of HamConnect is to stay as simple and easy to use as possible, while still providing a solid and useful platform for Hams and local club communities. This has been the foundation of this new functionality, and I am personally excited to start receiving feedback from users as we begin pushing out the Beta version.
A couple of things to be looking out for:
Volunteers for Beta Version
We are looking for 150 Beta users for the new HamConnect functionality. In the near future you will start to see information going out about the Beta version–you can help HamConnect a great deal by taking part in the Beta program! This will provide you with early access to the new functionality, and will give you an opportunity to offer your feedback and ideas before it all goes live. Check in later for the signup and for more information.
Groups and Club Stations
In the next few weeks we will be releasing a series of “How-To Videos” for HamConnect Groups. One of the coolest things about HamConnect is how customizable and in-depth the HamConnect Groups functionality is. HamConnect Groups provides a complete ‘internet suite’ whereby local club leaders or special event organizers can communicate, advertise, and grow their programs. Look out for these videos in the future for some creative ideas on how to get your local ham community more involved!
Ham Radio News Feed
A number of you have responded on the HamConnect homepage poll that you are interested in a ‘Ham Radio News Feed’. I would love to hear your ideas about what you would specifically like to see in a News Feed, and I absolutely intend to start pursuing this idea as another phase of HamConnect. Shoot me a message or leave me a comment to let me know what your thinking!
That’s all for now–look out for more info coming soon! Again, if you have questions or comments about anything, please get in touch with me. I’m all ears!
