Date   

Yahoo Groups, which hosts AARC members-only list, to shut down December 15

Michael Callaham
 

On October 12, The Yahoo Groups team sent an email to me and, I would guess, every other subscriber of the Arlington Amateur Radio Club's members-only Yahoo group. The important paragraph is:
Beginning December 15, 2020 the Yahoo Groups website will shut down and members will no longer be able to send or receive emails from Yahoo Groups. We’ve compiled a comprehensive FAQ here that includes alternative providers and information on how this will impact your group content.

Arlington Amateur Radio Club President Gary KC5QCN has said he has a plan to migrate members-only emal to a new host, which would also host the w4wvp.org website.
If you have an account on the Yahoo ArlingtonARC site, this is a good time to delete messages that you don't want to save, then download messages that you do want to save to your device, or cloud, then delete _those_ messages on the Yahoo site.

This afternoon I heard KO4FFG calling on 2-meter repeater W4WVP/R, and I
answered. He said he's a new ham, name Eliu, and ours was his second
contact. He took the Technician exam in Annapolis. He was operating from
home in Springfield, Virginia, using an IC-2300 and a Comet GP-3. He also
has a Yaesu HT. He had a good signal through the repeater.

I welcomed him to ham radio and invited him to listen to Newsline and
check in tomorrow, if he can. I also invited him to read about the
Arlington Amateur Radio Club at w4wvp.org .

If you hear KO4FFG on 145.47, please welcome him.
