All area hams are invited to join the RVAHams Slack server, which hosts a variety of discussion channels on such topics as simplex, digital voice & data, HF, direction finding, and more. There's also a beginners channel which is an excellent source of information for newcomers in the hobby, a market channel for buy/sell/trade posts, and a general-purpose ragchew channel for stuff that doesn't fit anywhere else.
This Slack server was started several years ago and is hosted by Reid Barden N1VCU. There is no cost to participate. It has a well established user base of numerous local hams and we'd love to have you join us.
