    Welcome to this forum which has been introduced by the society to help to discuss any EMC (interference) problems that fellow amateurs may be experiencing and i intend to help in any way i can and also by engaging other RSGB advisers to hopefully resolve the problem.

    I'm pleased to see this forum up and running. The thing now is to make sure everyone knows about it - and uses it!

    Thank you Peter, i cannot take any praise for this forum but glad to be of assistance to anyone who has a problem, the praise must go to the EMCC for setting it up, all i did was to agree to take on the roll as moderator which i will do to the best of my ability.
    All we now need is some more members to get the ball rolling, the more problems solved the less members will walk away from the hobby which is negative, as we need to increase not decrease.
    Good to see you here, spread the word if you could

    How will members know when either a new thread or a reply to an existing thread is posted? All the other forums to which I subscribe mail me with each new post which I can then either reply to or delete as appropriate. Without such a facility I cannot see this forum being as successful as you might wish because we do not have time to log onto every forum to which we subscribe in the offchance that there is something of interest.

    Hi Roger,

    If you look at the very top of the thread, on the right hand side, you will see a link called "Watch Thread" - if you click that link it will give you the option to select email notifications if a thread you are interested in is updated.

    Thank you for that guidance. I assume that to use that however you must have already "Watched" it - but how does one know that a new, possibly interesting, thread has been posted or interesting posts have been placed on previously unwatched threads? Is there a method, apart from "Watching" everything, where one can be notified of new posts on the forum?

    Go to the front page of the forum and, under the list of sub-forums, you will find a "Watch Forums" link which will notify you of all activity inside the forum in question.

    I admit total defeat on this. I have searched as you describe but no such link appears to me. A URL for the page concerned would be helpful as clicking on "Home" takes me to the introductory RSGB front page and clicking on "Forums" doesn't help either. I keep going round in circles and getting absolutely nowhere. I am a member of numerous Forums other than this one and have never found one as frustratingly difficult to use.
    Having just been deluged with over 500 spam e-mails by virgin.net in the past 24 hours doesn't help either................

    Hi Roger

    I struggled to find it as well, but it is there.

    This is a new forum so it may take a bit of adjustment to find it. This is how I did it:

    Click on the "Forums" tab at the top left.

    Then click on "EMC Matters"

    Then click on "Interference problems"

    "Watch forums" will appear about half-way down on the right, so click on that and select options.

    Good luck,

    Peter GW4JQP

    Thanks Peter,

    Found it at last! They couldn't have made it much smaller and fainter if they tried - it almost looks to be "greyed out" which usually means it is unavailable. I shall wait and see what it produces - I was looking for the ability to be made aware of all new postings and threads across the spectrum of RSGB forums as well as any individual one in which I had an interest. Time will tell what I get!

    Hi Roger,

    I see Peter GW4JQP directed you to the "Watch forums" link. I agree the link could be bolder - we'll see about editing that on the style sheet.

    Please post here, or go to www.rsgb.org/helpdesk if you have any further issues or questions.

    Thank you for setting up this forum,

    It has helped me with my madness, knowing other people who are suffering, and that their is a few good men around, helps lighten the load.

    I share this forum as much as I can, I want all Amateurs to understand we have to be Active!, I want all Amateurs to Actively come to this place and tell others about it, the problems we currently face are far and wide reaching, and we have to be on it..

    My problem may not get resolved, but then again it might, without this forum, I would of been none the wiser, I have learnt a hell of a lot out of all this, and made a few good friends in the process, I have read all the legislation around it, so I can understand in my head what's been going on, and why and how to resolve these issues we all face.

    I have also learnt skills I hoped never to have learnt, but now I have, I am glad I have learnt them and will pass on what I know to others, it can be a minefield, but then again, it can also be something really simple.

    I would like to give thanks to everyone that has listened to me, and also for the all the help that has come my way, thank you all so much..

    Keep up the good work you all do.

    Best Regards

    Kev, de 2E0WCK..
