SMC Mailing List

Frequently Asked Questions


Purpose of the list (guidelines)

When posting stuff on the reflector, please try to keep your posts related to contesting, radio, or the SMC. Keep in mind that there are close to 300 people on the reflector. It’s not an easy job to try and keep everyone happy…. but one way to start is to try and keep the nature of the SMC posts consistent.

When posting a general question that needs a response, please put something in your post like “reply direct, I’ll post a summary if there’s enough interest” or something like that. And when replying to emails from the reflector, please try to reply direct to the sender instead of clicking “reply to all.” There are obviously exceptions…. try to use your best discretion.
