I'm sorry to announce that the proposal to create

BIOTELEMETRY/bionet.biotelemetry (moderated)

did not pass.  Only 19 votes were cast in favor of this proposal, a
long way short of the needed 80 YES votes.

According to our rules, this proposal can not be considered again
until at least three months pass.

Newsgroup charter:

bionet.biotelemetry is a forum for scientific discussions and a source
of information for the community of scientists interested in any
aspect of the use of telemetry in monitoring physiological parameters
in animals. The name BIOTELEMETRY was chosen to reflect the common
interest in the use of telemetry to analyze physiological parameters
in different animal model systems, animals and organs. This newsgroup
is an initiative of the Working Party Telemetry The Netherlands (WTN).

Functions of the newsgroup: the newsgroup will facilitate rapid
communication among research scientists and educators analyzing a wide
range of physiological parameters in many biological fields, includig
but not limited to physiology, ecology, pharmacology, pathology,
developmental biology, chronobiology, wild life management etc.

The newsgroup will provide a forum for discussions of problems,
exchange of expertise, old and new ideas, journal publications, and
recent developments in biotelemetry. The newsgroup will provide
sources of practical advice, methodologies, expertise centres in
different countries, frequently asked questions concerning the use of
telemetry, techniques for implantation of teletric transmitters, new
developments, and the availability of telemetry for third parties at
expertise centres.

Finally, the newsgroup will serve as a bulletin board for
announcements of meetings and conferences on biotelemetry.

Subscribers are welcome from universities or any academic
institutions, government agencies, medical institutions, and
industrial or commercial organizations. Contributions within the
functions outlined above are encouraged.

Moderation policy: mass-posted commercial messages, chain letters, and
similar postings not germane to telemetry or related issues will be
deleted without coment. Inappropriate messages posted in good faith
will be returned to the sender. Messages not strictly within the
charter but likely to be of interest to many subscribers (e.g.
messages dealing with the analysis of physiological parameters in
general) will be accepted.
