About BVARC Listserve

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 bvarc@bvarc.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.

About BVARC

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.
