First, as to the need for graphic design, you might consider reviewing

http://www.site-reference.com/articles/Website-Development/The- 
Surprising-Truth-About-Ugly-Websites.html

before you spend a lot of money. That article explains something I  
have felt about the web for more than 10 years. Essentially, content  
is more important than refinement, and even refinement undermines  
content.

As to aprs.net, I'd be glad to give a domain name (for example  
info.aprs.net, or any other you'd like), but I don't want to host it  
on my server because of security/time concerns (I don't want to have  
others with accounts on the servers, and I don;t have time to upload  
changes myself).
