The RARS Yahoo Group is Shutting Down
The page at Groups.Yahoo.com says:
Attention: Starting December 14, 2019 Yahoo Groups will no longer host user created content on its sites. New content can no longer be uploaded after October 28, 2019. .....

RARS will delete the Yahoo Group at the end of November.

All subscribers of the RARS Yahoo Group are invited to join the new RARS open group at https://groups.io/g/rars. Like the old Yahoo Group - this is an OPEN Group. Anyone can subscribe to the group - RARS member or not!


The RARS Yahoo Group was created in October 2001 to replace the original RARS Forum. It has served as an open forum to the Raleigh Ham Community for 19 years. Yahoo is now closing down all webpage portions of Yahoo groups and will only maintain the email functionality. This means than all features such as pictures, calendars, polls, and archives of messages/conversations will no longer be available.
