G0ROC gets its own on-line newsgroup
The club now has its own newsgroup: G0ROC@yahoo.co.uk. At the moment, membership is by invitation only but if you would like to join, send a message to Pete (M3ILV) at firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, just give me your email address at club evening and Iíll do the rest.
