Might even drop by myself ...

Couldn't help but notice this in the minutes:

"Keith has a storm spotter frequency website. He'd like to convert it to
a database for simplicity and to clean it up. He'd also like it to be
web accessible. Jeff, Jason, and Steven will work on it using some
combination of Access, MySQL, and PHP."

Dr Brewster is probably too modest to mention this so I will.  He's been
providing this list since at least 1992.  That's when I first ftp'd it
(ask your grandparents -- or Dr Ahern -- what ftp is) so it may even be
older.  Keith's put hundreds, if not thousands, of hours into
maintaining this list over the years and it has become the de facto
standard list for storm chasers and spotters alike *nationwide*.

Still no word, BTW, on the effective date for the new license rules.  So
if you pass the General written at SCARS' session a week from tonight,
you'll still have to come back and pay another $14 for a paper upgrade
after the rules change.
