Section Manager Remailer

The ARRL has made a useful service available to ARRL Members in Mississippi, who have an ARRL registered e-mail address.  W5XX can send information through the ARRL Server which will then be rebroadcast to the 600 (out of the 1,000 plus) ARRL Members in Mississippi, who have registered their e-mail addresses with the ARRL. This can be of great benefit to advertise hamfests, club meetings, special events, etc. at no cost. To take advantage of this service, send a plain text message to w5xx@arrl.org, and after review, he will send it on to the ARRL Server, if the content is appropriate.  Contact w5xx@arrl.org for more information.
