Important Advice: VKS-737 cannot guarantee acceptance or delivery of messages within their systems! It is possible that technical failure in any of their systems may prevent your message being relayed to us. Adverse HF conditions may also prevent effective contact with us. If you have other potential methods of communicating with us, we suggest those methods be employed in addition to this facility.
Content: VKS-737 do not accept messages that they judge to be potentially offensive or that may in any way contravene federal communications law.
Length: If messages are unnecessarily long, and/or contain frivolous and/or trivial content VKS-737 volunteer staff will most likely reduce the content. Please include the essentials only!
Phone: If you could telephone us please do that instead of using this facility.
Expiry: If your message is not retrieved by us within 5 days, it will be deleted (although urgent messages may be retained on the list, at VKS-737 discretion).
Confidentiality: The forwarding of messages is a public ‘event’ on the HF airwaves so there is no level of confidentiality. Consider the content of your message.
Urgency: Messages nominated as URGENT will find VKS-737 applying all available resources to make contact with us, but they cannot indicate any particular level of success.
