Almost every wireless provider have an available
wireless internet service accessible from your phone.
You must have a web capable phone and have
signed up for this service with your mobile phone provider.
Mobile phone systems are all a little different
in how you do this - but basically you must start your phones
browser and goto the oca web site at ocastronomers.org.
Don't forget to bookmark the page for easy
access next time.
I have tried to think of the most appropriate
and important information to be accessible via your phone.
Firstly you can see a list of some of the
most important dates coming up (Anza and Black-Star Canyon
Star Parties and the dates of the next OCA General Meeting).
Next from this page you can view the current
weather conditions out at our Anza site as reported by our
own weather station. This should be particularly helpful if
you are out and about and wanting to check up on the latest
weather conditions at Anza.
You can also view a list of other major
OCA events that are coming up in the next few weeks (such
as SIG meetings and Outreaches).
Please let me know if you find this new
facility at all useful - and make suggestions on what else
you would like me to add to the mobile information.
