It has been brought to our attention that the EMRFD group has been

We have contacted Yahoo to alert them of the problem. Hopefully they
will have, at the very-least, a response regarding the situation soon.

some other service. If this occurs, please consult w7zoi dot net or
ka7exm dot net for announcements on the change.

The concept behind starting this group forum was to encourage others
to work together with their construction techniques. The three

flow of free information, all for the sake of another spam issue.

Again, my apologies of the situation.
