Re: email posting to groups.io

I've been using Slack-VHF Chat while chasing rover and MS Qs. Jay is right, it only retains a limited period of previous posts. It's useful for coordinating activity but doesn't replace a groups outlet for archiving information or having a Files area. It also has a lot of extraneous posts and can wander off track at times.

Does anyone from the club actually use the dedicated Slack channel ?

Slack is good for real-time interaction but there is no archiving of messages beyond a certain point and, the bad part, you actually have to be monitoring (on-line) to see what's going on.  At least messaging sites like .io send you emails of everything.  Yes, I know millennials don't 'do' email anymore, which is why Slack has sprung into being.  But, why would they be anymore right about messaging then they are about anything else, 'hmmm ?

Jonesy,

There's a new system that's taken most everyone off groups io anyway.  It's called slack channel.  You can find the NMVHF Society at


There's also may other VHF channels you'll be interested in.  Check it out.

I'll just move on with my life -- without groups.io.
I'll still be signed up for the NMVHF --
it'll just be read-only -- 
unless I'm motivated enough to log on through the clunky browser gui.
