Hi Brian:

Wondering where you are looking for the groups ...I can't find any on Google Groups ..On Yahoo Groups I find ..

"TS570_590 Group" which has only 7 members ...which to me would indicate that it is dead
"TS-590Net" which seems to relate to an on the air net of TS590 owners.  Has 217 members ..but last posting was in October.

Subject: [CQ-Contest] kENWOOD TS590 YAHOO USER GROUP.

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.
