Welcome to the Comet Network list serve! This forum is designed for government access programmers to share information and exchange ideas. If you want to check out what equipment other operations are using, if others are experiencing the same technical problems you are having or just looking for some problem solving inspiration, this is the place! 

By creating a list serve for government programmers, we hope to encourage dialogue amongst us kindred spirits. This is not the place to debate the 9th Circuit Courtís decisions!

To provide us with additional useful information, we have invited a few video equipment dealers to join our list serve as well. They will provide us with pricing information, if requested, and advice as to what others are purchasing and trends they may see happening in our field and in the broadcast world as well. 

Also, we will be sharing the latest Comet Network news and updates as they happen on this list serve. 

Feel free to also share your successes and projects that have worked. And, donít forget to share pictures too!  To send an email to the Comet listserve, send to   To unsubscribe from the list at anytime, send an email to and write ďunsubscribeĒ in the subject line. 

We look forward to your involvement and participation. Together, we can all help each other do our jobs better!
