    On eBay, when I search for something,( i.e. Heathkit HW-101), I can save that search and anytime a listing comes up for a Heathkit HW-101, I receive an email.
    I know this is NOT eBay, (thank goodness!), but is there any way I can do that here!
    That would be awesome...…………….

    Well, Tom, at least SAVING the search is pretty easy, if not the automatic notification. Here's the solution I use:

    When one is logged-in, and performs a search, the search creates a unique URL in the address field of the browser. This URL contains all of your search arguments, including any filters you have created (date posted, exclusions, etc.)
    (Example:
    https://forums.qrz.com/index.php?search/98406700/&q=atas-120a&o=date&c[node]=7

    I simply create a Folder in my browser bookmarks called SEARCHES, and drag the shortcut of that unique URL to the folder.
    Next time I want to search for the same items, I just launch the bookmarks.
    Obviously, there is nothing "automatic" about this other than my own routine, but it's pretty effective.

    Cheers,
    David / N2PQW
