Guilt by association
I guess you don't recall November 22, 1968.
I think everyone knows what we mean. Rather than waste time on nitpicking, deal with the issues.
Isn't ham radio itself a waste of time? Time better spent doing something productive?
Like when I'm playing radio, indoors on a nice day when I should be mowing the back 40?
No it's not.
Even the members are just a funding source for the executive employees in Newington. The latter are going to do what they want, how they want, when they want, and not even the "new and improved board" is going to stop them from trying.
The member-driven ARRL of decades past is long-gone. It's time for people to accept that and act accordingly... which mostly means commenting on ill-advised petitions as they become available for comment at FCC.
I haven't been on the air in a month, doI need a backup rig?
No, you need three.
And a go-box...
I just read the FCC filing at issue and see nothing wrong with it at all.
It asks to replace the Baud rate limit with a 2.8 kHz limit.
It points out that consideration of any sub-band changes should belong to a future proceeding (rightly I think).
It says that any issues of non-compliance with the regulations on obscuring massages are enforcement issues and should be dealt with as such, rather than as needing some regulation change (rightly, IMO).
(And, as part of that, discusses the controversy swirling around Winlink and acknowledges the efforts and progress made in reducing inappropriate content by self-policing).
What is a "digital & ACDS" license?
Just exactly what different license do I need to get to be guaranteed those "privileges" ?
I agree. Given that the FCC has completely ignored Amateur Radio rule making since 16-239, small steps would seem to be in order.
IMHO, the ARRL should have accepted 16-239 as is back in 2016. The 2.8 kHz bandwidth limit was/is not necessary.
