Email List

Take advantage of the MLDXCC email reflector to stay current on club and member news. This is a standard "Mailman" system provided to the club by the hosts of contesting.com: AD1C, KM3T, W4AN and N5KO.

We hope you will find it an effective means of communication within the club. This is a closed reflector. Only MLDXCC members may subscribe to it and any message sent to it will go only to MLDXCC members currently subscribed. We encourage you to use the reflector for announcements of interest to MLDXCC members such as:

  • Contest results, including:
    • contest name
    • operator callsign(s)
    • station callsign (if different)
    • entry class (e.g., SO15LP, MSABHP, etc.)
    • QSOs
    • mults
    • score
    • soapbox comments (bragging, lies, etc.)
  • Antenna parties
  • Mailing parties
  • Special events
  • Items for sale or wanted (please limit to contesting-related items -- no junk, please!)
  • Operators wanted or available

Subscribing

You can initially subscribe by going to

http://lists.contesting.com/mailman/listinfo/mldxcc

If you ever want to unsubscribe or change your options (e.g., switch to or from digest mode, change your password, etc.), visit your subscription page at

http://lists.contesting.com/mailman/listinfo/mldxcc/<your email>

Note that <your email> must be an email address which is subscribed. You can also make such adjustments via email by sending a message to mldxcc-request@contesting.com with the word `help' in the subject or body (don't include the quotes), and you will get back a message with instructions.

Posting

To post to this list, send your email to mldxcc@contesting.com.

Administrative questions and comments can be sent to the list administrator, mldxcc-owner@contesting.com, who is WK6I.

Password

You must know your password to change your options (including changing the password, itself) or to unsubscribe. It is sent to you in your first welcome message. If you forget your password, don't worry, you will receive a monthly reminder telling you what all your mailing list passwords are, and how to unsubscribe or change your options. There is also a button on your options page that will email your current password to you. You may also have your password mailed to you automatically off of the Web page noted above.

Aliases

If you want to use an alias, e.g., kz6abc@arrl.net, as your subscription address, be advised that your postings will be rejected as "non-member submissions" because your 'From:' address will be your real email address, not the alias which is subscribed. However, there is an easy solution to this. Simply send the list administrator (WK6I, mldxcc-owner@contesting.com), any email addresses you may wish to post messages from and they will be added to a special list of approved addresses to post. These additional addresses will only be allowed to post, i.e., no reflector postings will be sent to them.
