Chuckle... now things are really spinning into confusing areas...   SSn-N, Message Groups or Bulletin groups...

Turns out, that there is a big difference between BLN groups and MSG groups.  MSG groups just allow you to ADD additional mail aliases for receipt of additional messages... But BLN groups are EXCLUSIVE.  Meaning if you set one, then ALL OTHER bulletins are excluded except those that match your BLN group.

SO MSG groups are inclusive and BLN groups are exclusive...

The kewnnod radios for example are pre-loaded with some generic default MSG groups:  ALL, QST, CQ and KWD.  To which you can add others...
