For anyone still using Yahoo groups, see this post which was put up by someone on
the Kenwood R-5000 group:

*Attention:* Starting December 14, 2019 Yahoo Groups will no longer host user
created content on its sites. New content can no longer be uploaded after October
28, 2019. Learn More at
https://help.yahoo.com/kb/index?page=content&y=PROD_GRPS&locale=en_US&id=SLN31010&
actp=email

In short, any files and photos on any yahoo group will go away as of
December 14 so if there is any content you want or need from any of your yahoo
groups you had better get it now.

The Yahoo Groups site will continue to exist, however, all public groups will be
made private or restricted. Any new group members will need to request an invite
or be invited by an admin. Admins will still be able to manage various group
settings, though some functionality will be limited.

What will happen on October 21st?

On October 21st, you will no longer be able to upload any content to the site.
To share info with members of your groups, you'll continue to be able to do so
via email.
