Re: OT : How About A Group For "Other" ?
I am sort of lost in this very long thread but will chime in FWIW. I belong to the Hewlett-Packard/Agilent/Keysite group. Some time ago a few of us decided to start another group dedicated to Boonton Radio, which became a division of -hp-. The group showed some activity at first but eventually sort of faded out although it is still going. There were several unrelated companies with Booton in their names and all get discussed in this group and are welcome because there just isn't enough Boonton Radio discussion to support it.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I think splitting a group or list makes some sense if there are a lot of semi-off-topic subjects where another list can be supported. Otherwise I am skeptical of its having any advantages.
I have only a couple of rather ancient Tek instruments, both of which are in constant use (except the scope I am working on) and appreciate the expertise and generally high level of understanding here.
I may add that there are many mailing lists and forums (forae) dedicated to various makes of test instruments and even to generic types of instruments. I would suggest making sure that any new group actually serves a purpose.

I took the plunge. the group name will be TestGearNotTekScopes. the email address will be TestGearNTS@groups.io, pending approval of course. I see no reason they wouldn't approve it though.
