Changes to the Newsletter and E-mail group.

After a run in with my ISP last October and having my e-mail blocked for SPAM (Someone must have reported it so my outgoing e-mail was blocked), Cody KI4FUV has been working on finding a mailing list for our club website that will be easy to use and comply with the CAN-SPAM act. After a couple of months searching, he found one that uses the Captcha verification method to prevent non-humans from signing up on the mailing-list and causing problems.
With that said, This will be the last group mailing of The RCARC Beacon Newsletter I will be sending out and everyone who wants to keep receiving The Roane County Amateur Radio Club E-mails and Newsletter will need to subscribe to our mailing-list on, or follow this link to subscribe now.

Click Here To Subscribe To The RCARC Newsletter and Mailing List!

After entering your name and e-mail address and the correct response to Captcha verification, you will be e-mailed a link that you will need to confirm when opened to be successfully added to the list. IF you do not get the link within a few minutes, be sure to check your SPAM or JUNK mail folders. I had mine on Gmail get tossed into that, so don’t forget to check your junk mail for the link. At the end of each e-mail, you will also have the opportunity to unubscribe if you wish.

If you have any problems using the link, send me an e-mail and I will try to help, or forward it to Cody.
I hope to see everyone Thursday 2/12/15 at the RCARC Meeting , 7:00 pm in the Roane County Rescue Squad building in Midtown.

To all members of RCARC

I just went down to get the key for the meeting and was told the room was
still under construction. There was no one at the rescue center so I don’t
know if I can get the key for that. I will go back to the rescue center
later to see if anyone is there. If not I will be at the meeting place to
let people know that there is no meeting.

If this e-mail does not go to everyone, please relay.
