For me, a day or two seems to work best, regardless of the event.  Anything
more than a week, and the reminder becomes unreliable again.  Again, this is
an annoying issue I deal with all the time.  Important stuff I have to leave
in an obvious place.  Ham radio (unfortunately) rarely gets to the
"important stuff" category - that's left for boring things like bills, etc.

In any case, I tend to be one to subscribe to "reminder" lists where they're
available and cover a topic of interest.

Maybe there's room for some robot to do the hack work of generating the
email from the web page - save the control team's time too.
