SVHFS List Server
August 3, 2013
The provider of our member and officer's list servers recently lost the email address lists these distributions were built from. They had aleady overwritten the backups so there was no recovery possible. We took this as an opportunity to decide to rebuild the list manually or to move to Yahoo Groups as several had suggested.
The advantages made the choice easy. We now have several user databases which memebers can fill in as to which bands they are active or have equipment for. The pictures from the 2013 Cocoa Beach, Florida conference are now posted there in an album as well. They claim we can have up to 100 GB of space, though a single album needs to be less than 100 MB. The Sprint Rules are posted there as well.
Take a look at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/SVHFS, or register by sending an email to SVHFSfirstname.lastname@example.org. Go into the database section and post your station capabilities and plans. The joining and posting is moderated until after the first post is approved.
