Some ARRL E-mail Forwarding Service (@arrl.net) users have reported receiving Bogus Notices with a subject line, “Warning!!! Code: WeBmAiLx2F5” or similar.

These warning e-mails are phishing attempts and did Not originate with ARRL.
Recipients Should Ignore the warning and should Not attempt to click on the link provided or to comply with its instructions.

The bogus warnings, which bear the ARRL logo, purport to originate from “IT Help Desk 2016” with a cableone.net domain and are addressed to “Dear ARRL User.”
The message instructs recipients to update their accounts by clicking on a link and providing account information.

The ARRL would never solicit information from e-mail users in this manner.

Fact of the Day

 


 

Bill's PACKET RADIO CLASS VIDEOS
are now streaming on the New DRC YouTube Channel,

where you can view all of Bill Rinker's (W6OAV) Packet Radio Class sessions.

These sessions took 10 weeks for Bill to present in 1992, and they are in-depth.

Although there have been some changes with newer technology,
the majority of the information is still current and very usable.

These repeaters and the packet gateway (2M side) can be used by all hams with Technician class and above licenses.


They are located west of Denver in Lakewood, providing local metropolitan area coverage -
however, they are not wide area repeaters.
