    Such lousy food and what small portions.

    Hmm. Nah. The idea is to save in taxes and operating costs which won’t happen in California.

    Even if we did move HQ, the Maxim Memorial station would likely stay where it is.

    The Delaware move was purely for incorporation. This was part of the agenda for the executive committee meeting but never discussed as other matters took priority.

    Things move slowly. I’m not sure what will be removed yet but the censure is now history.

    The idea is that we wanted to put this sorry episode well behind us and start back down the road to restoring faith in us by our members and donors.

    Nobody from the Board has editorial input on their own. Especially not those up for election in the current cycle. I believe that is in the bylaws.

    This article was drafted by editorial staff. It was not approved by the Board.

    Rescinding the censure had majority support in the Board room. In fact, when the SE director made a motion to table the censure for the next day, it was shot down 9-7.

    There’s no conspiracy here, other than maybe trying to avoid having to deal with editing yet another article in the website content management system.



    For what it’s worth - the SW Div director did not want the censure rescinded.

    Thank you Ria for your input. I for one made a lot of noise to a lot people when I heard about the censure and how it came about. I appreciate what you and the other board members did to correct the situation. I will consider this matter closed now. But I will be paying attention and will speak up to my director (and and elsewhere) if I have concerns in the future. Thanks again.

    If They (ARRL) wanted to save a few bux, and add more moolah to the reserve coffers for lean times, They could sell off a bunch of the more
    desirable for development locations.

    Then build a new H.Q. on top of some reclaimed dump land somewhere out in the Midwest.
    Just Contact Rumpke for available locations ready to build..
    If worse comes to worse, They will already be in the Dumps...

    It's only a hobby and not a way of life, Ria. Nothing worth arguing about which often leads to personal attacks on these forums and in radio clubs. Potential hams and newcomers get turned off to amateur radio when they either are the target of personal attacks or witness it in person or on-line. That's human nature.

    ARRL has its purpose-- to represent the some odd 160,000 members of which I am one. I don't necessary agree with everything the League says and does. However; as with any other organization--it does have its fair share of personality clashes which can lead to further unpleasant events.
