Yahoo! Group

A WAY TO KEEP IN TOUCH

Our club has a Yahoo! Group with a mailing list that allows us to pass on interesting information to others in the most timely manner. Group members can post pictures, files, and other items they wish to share with the Group.

Membership in our Yahoo! Group is open to all interested in amateur radio, especially in the Pasadena area and the San Gabriel Valley. It is not necessary to be a member of the Pasadena Radio Club.

Joining the group

Before you can join the Group, you need to be a Yahoo! member. If you aren't already a member, go to yahoo.com and click the Sign Up link, which is at the top near the Sign In link. If you are hesitant about yet another web account, note that this one is free and generates no spam. You can specify your regular email address as an alias so that any email sent to your Yahoo! address is automatically forwarded to your regular email address.

Once you have registered as a Yahoo! member, follow these steps to join the Yahoo! Group:

Go to the PRC-Club Yahoo! Group. (Alternatively you can visit the Yahoo! Groups Directory and search on Pasadena Radio Club.)

Click the Join this Group! button in the upper right-hand corner of the page.

At this point, if you aren't already logged in to Yahoo!, you will be asked to enter your Yahoo! ID and password. There is also a Create New Account link if you haven't yet registered as a Yahoo! member.

The “Join This Group” page appears. Here set your membership preferences, e.g. the public profile you want displayed to the Group, how and where you'd like Group email delivered, etc.

Select Join in the lower-right corner of the page.

Your request will be reviewed by one of the Group moderators, Phil WA6DZS, Bruce N1BN, or John AC6VV. All being well, you will receive an email advising that your request for membership in the Group is approved.

Preferences

The Group is currently set up to send meeting reminders. If that generates more traffic than you would like, you can set your preferences for daily digests, or web-only access. In the latter case, just log on to the Yahoo! Group when you wish to see what has been posted lately.
