Analog Newsletter
Many members are not currently subscribing to the Analog, the Central Texas Section electronic newsletter covering the activities of the various chapters in the section. If you are not subscribed, but would like to be, please send an email from your own address to Put the following text (without the quotes) in the body of the message , "subscribe cts-section". Send it off, and you should get feedback. Be advised that there is NOT a lot of traffic on this list intentionally.  The list manager tries to keep it below 3 emails a month - the Analog, the mid-month reminder, and maybe an emergency announcement, but we prefer 2 emails a month.
