I recently obtained one of these rigs and applied to subscribe for membership. I just received a reply as follows.....

>>> Your request to join the KenwoodTS-590 group was not approved.
>>> The moderator of each Yahoo! group chooses whether to restrict
>>> membership in the group. Moderators who choose to restrict
>>> membership also choose whom to admit.

As our hobby is all about sharing knowledge and helping each other I do find this response surprising to say the least and a distinct lack of courtesy in failing to give a reason for the declination .

Is anyone able to tell me who is the strange minded person who is the moderator of this group as, I presume, they (he) are USA based and why they should adopt such a restrictive undesirable policy which most certainly does not subscribe to the Ham Spirit.
