I'm trying out a donation feature to supplement and/or replace the income that comes from site advertising. A recent survey of members indicated that about 1/3 of members would be willing to make a donation in order to see less advertising when using Channel 6-8. Donations will also help fund things that the group has requested, such as producing and distributing Channel 6-8 stickers, rewarding volunteers and outstanding contributors for their efforts, and supporting community events.
Annual donations of $20 or more automatically earn the Channel 6-8 ROC. (Restricted Operator Certificate), which will significantly reduce the amount of advertising you see. Unlike the official ROC , a Channel 6-8 ROC doesn't license you to talk on a VHF radio and is valid for one year (unless you're a really generous donor). Donations are voluntary.
Automated donations through the website are made possible through PayPal and/or Credit Card. If you would like to donate, and prefer E-transfer, please contact me via a site conversation or send me an e-mail @ firstname.lastname@example.org.
