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 700 (out of the nearly 1,000 ) 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.
