Actually, 59 of the participants on this list have stations on the air.
(OK, I admit mine is off the air just now, as I moved into a new house and
have not yet completed the new dish to go with it. But it's in the
backyard, taking shape, and I should be back on the air shortly. My first
personal SETI observations were in 1979, so I think I can claim a little
bit of experience here.)

Only you can unsubscribe yourself. See

Keep up the good work. We'll be happy to welcome you to the HITS list as
soon as your Argus participant survey is received.
