NEWS: WSJTGROUP Reflector Use
- As owner of this reflector I wanted to make a few comments. First let me
state I believe this reflector serves a useful purpose for all members
and moderating it has been a pleasure. We are a group of people with a
common interest in WSJT and the membership is world wide.
I am planning to terminate the Weekly Reminder relating to Random Hour
in the near future. I believe most of us know about it now and we plan
to replace it with a "Once a month" note explaining the WSJTGROUP
activities. The Random Hour announcements on the other lists will be
left unchanged. I.e. the Digital On Six Group and the PSK_VHF_HAMRADIO
Group both receive announcements on Saturday mornings. By eliminating
this weekly reminder it will help reduce the number of emails received
Some members have started using the reflector for announcing band
openings. Although this is not prohibited I think there are better
places for those type announcements. Please consider using other outlets
for those type announcements.
The reflector is an excellent place to look for prospects when making a
schedule listing for a contest or rally. It appears to be working great
and this is the best place to look for prospective schedules. But;
arranging the details of the schedules would be best handled off the
reflector. It is a common mistake to just hit the reply button when
answering an email requesting schedules; most of us have done this.
Stations requesting schedules probably should add their email address in
the body of their note which would make it easier for other station to
reply directly to them.
None of these are problems at this time; in fact I was reluctant to
mention anything at all. I am not complaining and no one has complained
to me. This is your reflector, use it wisely.
Hours before the contest starts this reflector is a good place to post
your schedule for others to view if you want stations to attempt
tail-ending your contacts.
Good luck to everyone in the contest, have fun.
