Rooster Roster Woe's
Willie, WJ3G - 01/13/2014
For those members that have had trouble signing in to the Rooster Roster pages, it appears not to be caused by the site. In fact we believe we have it narrowed down to an issue with the latest Microsoft® Internet Explorer 11. This should only effect users using Windows® Vista, and the newer versions of their product.
The good news that the work around is pretty simple. In fact you may already have it! If you don't have another browser installed on your computer, now would be a good time to add one. Seems the pages do display correctly in Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and most other browser apps.
If you continue to have trouble accessing those pages, you might try asking for assistance on the net, or let Bob, KD2UJ know what you are experiencing.Thank you all for your assistance.

For those that may have been missing the net, we are firming up details for a two day get together in Cocoa Florida.
On Thursday February 6th we are planning to spend the day at Cape Kennedy, followed by dinner at Grandpa's Steakhouse located at 3660 King St. Cocoa FL 32926.
Then on Friday February 7th we spend the afternoon socializing at Florida's Seafood Bar & Grill located at 480 West Cocoa Beach Cswy. (520) Cocoa Beach, FL 32931. We will gather there at noon, and rap things up by 3 PM or a little later.
The next day many of us will be driving to the Orlando Hamcation, where we usually get together to say hello at 11AM at the planter that is in the middle of the open area surrounded by the fair ground buildings.
We will try to provide you with more details soon. Please let Paul, WD4EBA know if you will be attending. This will help us with arrangements, and reservations for the different events which are all pay as you go.Thank you!
