The list server is running, Brian is working on the final setup / config.
Sorry, its I thought I could do it in just an hour, but I've never set this software up before so it took 2 hours.

I'm guessing the list will be up and running.

Any suggestions on how we can confirm that the person attempting to signup for the group buy listserv is actually a principle member?

I don't think we want a list of all the members distributed. I was thinking a simple script might allow an authorized person to query *if* a certain email address is a principle member or not.. hmmm... a puzzle..

I guess the person asking for the list membership could do so on the principle member list @ wispa.

I like the recent post about monitors too. Frankly the BND stuff for $500 is good, but I'd use at least twice as much of it :-) if it were $250. ha!

I sent you a note directly, I'll hang in there for a while tonight to get the listserver doing precisely what it should.

That would be great. People are asking me about 5.2, 5.7, 2.4, as well as 900. I just want 900 for now. If we get a place to talk about it, someone else can coordinate the same with each product.

I'm getting a lot of interest off list on the group idea. Can anyone (principal member) set up a mail server for use to talk about this. ASAP!

It's not that I don't support the concept, truthfully, I could care less whether you buy your gear from a distributor, reseller, or direct from the

I have just seen it implemented (rather unsuccessfully) many times by ISPs such as yourselves, and am trying to help you avoid making such a mistake

The idea of a WISP buying group is nothing original, for the past few years, I've seen this idea come up at least once a month on some WISP listserv /
forum / etc...

However, if it was really that "easy and simple" -- why hasn't it been
implemented yet on a consistent long term basis?

Here's my observation

-The guys that fail with their buying group end up getting their inventory
liquidated on Ebay, go bankrupt and disappear

-The guys that just barely sell their inventory realize how much of a PITA
the organization/operation is, and go back to buying from their

-The guys that are extremely successful become resellers/distributors
