Welcome to the Blind Hams group.
Please take a moment to review this message. We suggest that you save it for later reference, as it contains important information about this group, how to send messages, how to change your preferences, and a few basic rules of conduct.
This welcome message contains all the information needed to handle your subscription.
The footer at the bottom of every message you receive from Blind-Hams contains links that you can use to manage your subscription. This will help you as well as the List owner and Moderators, because this is a large list and we may not always be
able to immediately handle individual subscription changes.
The Groups.io listserve is a fully-featured service that manages several lists. You can manage your group memberships -- not just the blind-hams list, but any list you belong to that is a groups.io list -- by going to:
There, you can create your user account with a password so you can manage your mail activity, such as going no-mail, getting digests, etc. from any of the groups.io lists you might belong to, including blind-hams.
To log in without a password, click the "Email me a link to log in" button.
Once you enter your email address, you'll immediately be sent an email with a link that will automatically
log you into Groups.io. You will stay logged in for up to 30 days, unless you log out. You can then set a password if you wish, or you can continue to
utilize the Email me a link to log in function to log in when needed.
The main subscription management page for Blind-hams is located at:
This is a list to discuss amateur radio as it concerns blind hams. This list is also for blind hams to ask other related tech questions that may tangentially deal with ham radio, i.e. use of adaptive technology.
Due to concerns from some members about the extremely high-traffic of this list, and so to prevent contributors from needlessly unsubscribing, please do not post "me too" or other similar messages. Also, to reduce traffic, please post any thank-you messages directly to the contributor.
Additionally, it is suggested that you try to group your replies into one message; i.e., rather than replying to each message that may give you a suggestion, try in as much as possible, to combine all your replies into one response.
Sometimes a message thread starts with a clearly defined purpose, but as the discussion develops the subject matter can change. If this
happens, you should take the initiative and change the subject line to better reflect the subject matter of the thread.
As a reminder, new members of the list are automatically moderated.
