 You should send a private message to the bot with just your callsign. You will be able to rejoin in about 10 minutes.

Hi Steve, tried to join, already telegram user, I got the message to send a PM within 10 minutes but where do I send a PM. After the 10 minutes I was removed and my username already has my callsign.
Now if I try to join again it tells me sorry this group is private.

I find the troubleshooting process and the tools used to delve into the workings of the machine very educational. I will miss them.

We have been aware that some of the support e-mails have caused so very large threads with short messages back and forth as I have worked to help a user through a problem. Some users who are subscribed to individual e-mails have been spamed by this and have unsubscribed. Digest subscription will solve this. I have not wanted to move this traffic to private e-mail since the purpose of is to provide a place where people can find similar issues and resolve them. Going to private e-mail removes the resolution from the forum.

So, we are going to try something different. We have a Telegram group setup Telegram to try to move some of the quick back and forth off I will post the resolution on once we have a resolution.  To keep from having the Telegram room spammed by bots and people, we have implemented a system where you must verify you are a ham to join the room. This is a bot created by Vladimir AC2F and I must say, it's pretty cool. The invite link is Join DVSwitch Telegram group You must be a telegram user to join. There are quite a few ham related rooms. Join us.
