Re: uBITx.net website

Initially I was against starting other groups that focus on the BITX phenomena, but after seeing your web site
and what you are doing with it I am having second thoughts. Your approach does have potential to lower
workload on moderators for the existing BITX20@groups.io discussion group. That alone should make the
moderators very happy. 🤗
Presently the BITX@groups.io group covers everything from the initial BITX20 design by Farhan over 10 years
ago. This includes several different BITX transceivers, some clones of BITX that do not bear the name, and
a lot of add-ons, modifications, and other bits of information. Over those years we all have learned much,
made new friends, and had lots of fun. Maybe it is time to spin off a group that is dedicated just to the uBITX
( micro-BITX) and things that only apply to it.
Are you going to have a section for discussions, and a header that refers to this BITX20@groups.io mail handler,
and the http://www.groups.io/bitx20 site?
If you are going to have a discussion section, how are you going to handle those who wish to post the same
information on both groups (seems counter-productive).
There is also the issue of which site will be the "official BITX information repository" but maybe that will work
itself out with time and use.
All this raises a question...how do you want us on the BITX20@groups.io to show existence of your web page?
We can add it to the "Links" section but that only works for those who actually log in to the group itself. Those
who only communicate with this group via Email will never see your URL.
There is a "message footer" under Message Formatting. Maybe this could be used to advertise your new uBITX
web site, but things would get messy if we were to do the same advertising for everything BITX. Possibly
using that footer for advertising of your site for some limited period of time would work but it fails for those who
join this group after the advert has been removed.
I'm looking for some suggestions here?
I have BCC'ed this message to the other two moderators so that they can add their thoughts and comments.
