It sounds like you misinterpreted the purpose of the SIG. This isn't a
"Daily APRS Tips" newsletter, it is a discussion group. Bob forwarded
his message to the SIG for our review and critique. There is nothing
better than the minds of many. This is not to say we can't learn a
thing or two from the messages posted, but discussion is always
welcome.

Stephen brought up some points of improvement for the webpage. Indeed,
it could benefit from better organization and higher resolution
photos. Web usability has come a long way since the 1990s. To have the
best impact, a website must be accessible, organized, and follow other
usability best-practices. I assume Bob wants his webpage to be
effective, so I'm sure he will take any criticism constructively.

P.S. Please feel free to critique any APRS endevor of mine. I
acknowledge I am not perfect and I would love to improve.
