WELP, That's a shame. I was first licensed in 1976 but let that expire in 1981. After the hurricanes last summer I decided to get back into HAM radio. I thought it would be good to join ARRL, so I did. I wondered why there were so many operators now who are not members. This thread explains that. I will be letting my membership expire unless I see some positive changes in the way management is running ARRL before that happens.
