You are correct, sir. One of the things that was done recently (and
I'm trying to keep up with them myself) was that the cc: towertalk function
was disabled. In other words, anything cc:'d to TowerTalk will be
bounced/rejected/not posted. As it was explained to me, it is supposed to
cut down extraneous posts by people who automatically cc: something. Many
times these were best left unposted. I don't know if it can be changed back;
let me know if you want it turned back on again and I'll pass it along.
From now on, just add firstname.lastname@example.org in the "to:" field and
everything will work just fine (see example on this header).
Hopefully everything is working fine now and we can get on with pithy
tower and antenna discussions again.
