Hi all,

We have been using the same server for the contesting.com mailing lists
for the past 6 years or more.  N5KO and I paid for the original server,
and I've paid for a new motherboard and a hard drive or two when they have

But now its time to replace the entire box.  I had hoped to get eHam.net
to pay for the new server, but there hasn't been enough revenue from
advertising.  The plan is to purchase a used box on eBay or UBid.  We
don't have big CPU/Memory requirements.  We just need something with
redundant hard drives (RAID) and power supplies, and hopefully something
new enough that we can find replacement parts if something fails.

I hope some of you will have extracted enough value from these lists to
see fit to contribute something toward a new server.  Your contribution
will only go to the purchase of a new contesting.com mail server.  Nothing
else.  We will take up $1,000 in contributions, and if the server costs
more... N5KO, AD1C, KM3T, and I will make up the difference.

You can make your contribution online at the following URL:

or you can can send a check to:

5095 Hamptons Club Drive
Alpharetta, GA  30004

Thanks in advance.


Bill Fisher, W4AN
