Good morning, all - 

This is just a reminder and update regarding our 8 email lists.  

There are several possible combinations of list members, such as someone is on 
the Slant Tango list, the MDC list and the Region 3 list.  But instead, they 
might be on the Virginia list, the Tech list, the Region 3 list and the 
Trimarsops list.  With some 140 member stations, cross checking the content of 
these lists is getting very interesting, to say the least.  

The list members are found initially by email address, not by call sign.  The 
email address usually does not reflect the MARS call sign, so each one must be 
looked up and compared with data on the Region 3 roster, checked for accuracy 
and updated as needed.  That does not include bounced messages, requests for 
message posts or questions about email delivery, etc.  Any time you have a 
change, please let me know as soon as possible.

We periodically receive automated subscription requests from unknown 
individuals.  Either Jim or I screen these attempts, as all our lists are 
"closed" and membership is by invitation only.  We are currently working on one 
situation where a person, who has identified themselves as a MARS station in 
Michigan, attempted to join 7 of our 8 lists.  This does not pose a security 
issue at this time, and even if someone were allowed to join, they cannot post 
messages without further intervention on our part.  However, they can read our 

As a follow up to our staff meeting, the following changes have been 
implemented to our various list servers.  Please let me know if there are any 
changes or corrections.

mdmarscus is a newly created list that contains our customer stations as well 
as AAM3EMD, AAM3IMD, AAA3MD and AAM3MD.  It has not been tested yet, and NO 
messages are to be sent to this list until Jim has a chance to contact the 
group and introduce the project.  That should be happening in the near future.

AAT3VM, NS3X@xxxxxxxxxxx, has been removed from mdmars_members and rgn3_mars.

AAR3DJ, KE3HAY@xxxxxxxxx has been removed from mdmars_members, rgn3_tangos and 

Please let me know if you have any questions or comments.

73 for now,
