I've gotten those every now and then and am starting to get them on a more regular basis lately.
The perpetrator is using his amateur radio status as an excuse to get you to go to his web site and purchase artwork. I've heard from others who've gotten this UCE over the years (I think there was even a thread on either eHam or QRZ about it a few years back) who have asked this induhvidual to remove them from his list; he has to date declined in all instances. He also uses multiple addresses, so he obviously knows that he is irritating many amateurs -- and doesn't care. All I can suggest Tom is that if your ISP has an anti-UCE filter at the web site (some, like my old ISP, FYI.NET, do), use it to block or otherwise filter out the email out before it gets to you. 73, ron w3wn -----Original Message----- From: [EMAIL PROTECTED] [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] Behalf Of Tom Anderson Sent: Saturday, March 10, 2007 1:30 PM To: Dx-Chat Subject: [DX-CHAT] Repeating message Does anyone keep getting several times a week an e-mail from a [EMAIL PROTECTED] that is a HUGE file especially when I'm on dialup?
