If you want a full Ham site CLICK HERE

First you will need a website, you can get a FREE one "HERE" Just sign up for a free site and wait for your password ETC. Then you will need to make your software send your images to your website ether with the built in FTP "DM780 & EasyPal" or if you are using MMSSTV etc you will need a external program called FTP_Widget" "HERE". Now if you want to put a page on your site you will need a web builder type software Front Page or Dreamweaver are both good. I have made some basic "get you started" pages that you can download and put on your site I have 3 files first one easypal.zip for easypal and a 2nd file for analogue sstv.zip this has 2 files in it, one for MMSSTV that just shows last rx images and one for DM780 that has a added part to display your TX images. What ever one you decide to use, if it will be the only page on your site, you will need to rename it index.html You must do this. then FTP this index.html to your website with a FTP program "HERE" . So now you should have a basic page showing your latest RX images. Now you can play with HTML and ether make your own pages, Edit the basic pages you downloaded or just leave it as it is. When your images are being uploaded to your site, let me know and I will add you to my pages for others to see and link to your site. ENJOY.
