I believe the problem is that this list, like many other are (IMVHO)
badly configured such that replying to the list is quite hard.
Of the several amateur radio lists that I read, only the hamlaw
reflector sends out its mail with a Reply-To: header addressing the
list. Other lists just send out reflected mail with the original's
From: author header, so readers using bog-standard email software who
simply `reply' to an item on towertalk or any of the other lists
hosted by contesting.com will reply just to an item's author alone.
I'll cc: the list's owner with these comments.
