BoatAnchors -- Ham radios with tubes


About BoatAnchors

Our primary purpose is to help each other with the restoration and use of tube-based communications equipment.

This is not your usual Internet free-for-all. This is a group that self-disciplines itself to maintain a polite and productive environment.

The BA group is "loosely" moderated. There are only a few rules, but we are very serious about them. You must be willing and able to adhere to this standard of behavior in order to remain a member of this group.

Note: the BoatAnchors email list is a "closed" list, and only subscribers may post. We have taken many steps to remove, block, and otherwise keep "SPAM" off the list. As part of that effort, we subscribe to the "RBL" real-time database of SPAM sites, and block all mail from those sites. Should your ISP become a "blocked" site, you will *NOT* be able to send mail to the list administrators, and you will not be able to post to the list itself...
Your only recourse is through your ISP, in encouraging your ISP to change whatever is causing the site to be blocked.

To see the collection of prior postings to the list, visit the BoatAnchors Archives. (The current archive is only available to the list members.)
