     I have several other accounts on Yahoo and all seem to work FB.  I never use the yahoo account for email and have a strong password there.  So far, so good..

Chief among the benefits is that the group and discussion carry on.  That's all I care about, and I've never had missing mail with a Yahoo group.

Thanks Don!

Good morning Fred,

I think it's just resistance to change, Yahoo groups has had some bad
press in the early days regarding groups but I honestly believe the
criticisms probably be directed at poorly setting up of the individual
group than at Yahoo. Just look at the SKCC, great group and
administration, and that is the key word. I sit on several and have
had no issue with them, I think once it settles down folks will
discover that there are way more benefits than detriments. just my

Hi,

Anybody who is happy with Yahoo should go out and celebrate. Some of us
will do what we can to make this less obnoxious. Some of our friends are
just plain gone and we will not see them on here again. It's happened
with other lists that moved to Yahoo and Google. I expressed my own
disappointment. That doesn't mean anybody else has to be disappointed
though I'm clearly not the only one.

Please...let's not get a big long winded, flame generating, far off
topic discussion about the merits or lack thereof with Yahoo, Google,
MSN, QTH.NET, Blondes, Redheads, etc. It's not going to change anybody's
mind and will only make hard feelings.

And now back to your regularly scheduled program - QRP ham radio
operations (grin). I need to get my Dentron 80 meter low power
transceiver back in operation.

They will most likely be put on the 4sqrp website, dependent on the webmaster of course.

Yahoo I'm here 2

Having run a few servers, bulletin boards and mail lists I salute you for your service Don! I've been on Yahoo a long time and had very few challenges if setup properly. I think we'll all settle in and do just fine.

Be nice to have easier archive, file sharing, member lists, and photo album features for sharing outings, projects, events and helping us see one another across the miles. I know many of the group by dits and dahs and will be fun to see a face now and then.

I very much dislike "yahoo groups" and feel much contempt towards yahoo and their groups, BUT I make the exception for 4SQRP.

Four State QRP is a great group and I would not want to miss anything Four State QRP has to offer.

New list

I'm at a loss to understand the doubts expressed about Yahoo Groups. The GQRP reflector which Graham G3MFJ & I run has over 2600 members and it works pretty smoothly for us.

If set correctly, you will never see a new member join and immediately start spamming. You can prevent attachments that might be harmful and there are a number of other controls to make life safer/easier. There has also hardly been any downtime since we started here in 1998.

You don't have to use the Yahoo web interface to post if you don't wish to - or even log into Yahoo to post. Just send to 4sqrp@yahoogroups.com

So given that this is now the new 4sqrp home, lets see how it goes and thanks to Don for all his hard work - I hope this works out a little easier.

Kind regards
Tony G4WIF

I also want to thank Don for his years of service to the group. Very much appreciated by all of us.

Looking forward to all of the posts on this new venue.
