A LISTSERVE, also known as a "LISTSERVER"
a "REFLECTOR" or "MAILING LIST" is a way to communicate through email as
a group. Messages are sent to
firstname.lastname@example.org Messages sent
to the listserve are automatically forwarded to everyone that is signed
up to the listserve. What that means is, if you have something to say,
everyone on this listserve will get the message in their email inbox and
if you reply to a listserve message, it to will also go to all members..
Managing the emails from the
listserve is simple. You can log in below and change the
emails from individual or digest, individual is what most folks use
which will give you each email to the list individually and pretty
much real time, digest is a one big email at the end of the day with
all the individual emails clumped into one. Some folks prefer digest
mode to prevent their inbox from being flooded if discussions on the
list gets active, but you could miss breaking news. Every
message from the listserve will have [BVARC] in the subject line
(including the brackets) this makes it very easy to filter all the
emails into a folder of their own on your email program.
If you're using OUTLOOK click on TOOLS then RULES AND ALERTS
then set a rule that looks for any subject with [BVARC] in the
subject (include the brackets) and then moves that email to a folder
called BVARC .. (other email clients are similar to OUTLOOK)...
The listserve is used for
official club notices for members, member announcements, items for
swap, sale or buy and just about anything related to the club or ham
radio, including those of you that cant get enough BVARC, this
listserve is a way you can communicate with other BVARC members
without waiting for the monthly club meeting, or for those of you
that can't always make the regular meetings.

The Brazos Valley Amateur Radio Club (B-VARC) is the largest, most active ham radio club in the Southwest Houston Area. It was originally organized in 1978, primarily as an emergency communications group available to assist the communities of Stafford and Missouri City when required. Since that time B-VARC has grown and expanded its activities to bring together many diverse interests.
Today, B-VARC is truly a general interest club with an impressive record of public service. This commitment to service has been recognized by the American Radio Relay League (ARRL) with the coveted status of Special Service Club. We are proud of our members who represent the finest in Amateur Radio. Membership is not limited to licensed operators, but is open to anyone with an interest in Amateur Radio.
