Re: Does the FB Group support the CVRDA Mission?

Many websites have simply given up having a forum and use Facebook. From that point of view, the cvrda forum is doing better than most. Agree entirely on the seachability thing, on the off topic stuff, on all the other issues that have popped up over the last few years. But in the end it is where pe...
