    Hello All,

    Since we've happily had new people in here lately, let me post the echo rules.

    We're glad you're here!

    The Fidonet HAM Echo Rules
    Updated 14 February 2022

    Moderator: Sean Dennis KS4TD (1:18/200 or sysop@outpostbbs.net)

    HAM is for the discussion of amateur radio in all of its forms.

    By your participation in this echo, you agree to the following rules:

    * Real names are required to be used in this echo. No aliases. If
    your BBS software will not allow you to toggle between real name and
    alias in the message header, sign your message with your real name.

    * If you are a licensed amateur radio operator with a valid callsign
    in your country, please include it in your messages.

    * All messages must be in English. You may post a message in your native
    language as long as an English translation accompanies the native
    post in the same message.

    * No blatently off-topic posts such as BBS ads, "test" messages,
    et cetera.

    * Any traffic concerning Fidonet matters, such as alleged "echo
    hijackings", complaints about other echoes and their moderators,
    or any traffic construed as such by the moderators is OFF-TOPIC.
    Absolutely none of that is allowed in this echo and violators will
    be dealt with swiftly. Please take such discussion to netmail or
    another appropriate echo.

    * Be civil and have a sense of humor.

    * Please don't gate this echo to USENET, a mailing list, another BBS
    mail network, an online Fidonet mail archive, or anything else
    without the moderator's express and written permission. This is
    a Fidonet echo and needs to stay in Fidonet.

    * This echo does not recognize any local or regional echomail policies
    such as EP1. This echo originates in Zone 1 and follows Zone 1 policies
    concerning the "echolist".

    * The moderator has the final say in dealing with problems in the echo.
    If you have something to say about a moderator's action, please
    contact them via netmail (preferred) or email.

    * This is a living document and will be adjusted as needed.

    * This document will be posted on the 1st and 15th of each month and
    when needed.

    * Please don't hesitate to contact the moderators with any questions.

    Thank you for your participation in HAM!
