Polar Circle is hosted by Yahoo! Groups
See below for subscription information
POLAR CIRCLE is a worldwide, free-of-charge internet-based e-mail discussion list that is devoted to the North Polar Regions. The list is open to anyone with an interest in the North Polar Regions. Interest areas of list subscribers include, but are by no means limited to, north polar history, geography, navigation, exploration and expeditions, tourism, archeology and ethnology, culture, weather and climate, aviation, literature, and current events of the region. The list is open to both "experts" and newcomers alike. POLAR CIRCLE provides an opportunity to ask--and answer--questions, share information and ideas, and in general to communicate with others worldwide who share your interests and enthusiasm
The term North Polar Regions is defined as including: the North Geographic Pole; the Arctic Ocean; and generally the land areas immediately bordering the Arctic Ocean, including the northernmost coast of Alaska, the high Canadian Arctic and the Magnetic North Pole, northern Greenland, Svalbard (including Bear Island), and the Russian Arctic, especially, Franz Josef Land, Severnya Zemlya, Novaya Zemlya, the New Siberian Islands and Wrangel Island.

The language of the list is English. Anyone who subscribes to the list can post messages. In turn, messages are transmitted automatically via e-mail to all other subscribers. The list supports HTML format, and, if your e-mail program permits, subscribers can insert such items as photos and maps--in .jpg or .gif format ONLY--in their messages. However, primarily because of the danger of inadvertently transmitting viruses and because of possible long download times, subscribers are asked not to include other file attachments.
Subscribing to POLAR CIRCLE is entirely free-of-charge. The only requirement is that you complete a very brief registration process with Yahoo! Groups, sponsors of the mailing list.
