Sorry about the typo in the title. That's what I get for posting this from my phone with no glasses.
Don't be fooled.
This is all about filling the league's coffers. They're losing members like me and new hams aren't joining.
It's a bit about education, but it's primarily about boosting ARRL's membership and selling their overpriced products with really expensive shipping.
that may be the lamest youtube of all time. it's completely unwatacble! the first 12 minutes are "can you hear me now, how about now?" how about learning to edit before posting it!?!? And why is the host shown continuously, he's not interesting? the slides are too small to read. why aren't they full screen, with the speaker in a cameo box? And what was that win10 update popup over the lady gurest? Geeeze this is like 7th grade A/V stuff!!
TL;DR: complete waste of time, 0 of 10 would watch again.
You hit the nail on the head...
You got that right I'm done with the ARRL , all I wanted is the QSL service to work but with no help from the section managers that's it.
This video was horrible. We don't need to see the face of the host all the time and way too many glitches that should have been edited out.
Well that went over well.
What a disaster in every way.
I don't get this statement.
If you don't have new hams then its axiomatic that you don't get new members. If you don't give these new hams a 'value equation' for ARRL membership then they have no reason to join. No one forces anyone to be a new ham, and no one forces ANYONE to join the ARRL.
Are you saying people don't have free will?
ARRL has a mission to promote amateur radio. Period.
So, explain to us why the ARRL is NOT acting in the best interest of getting and keeping active, new hams?
I mean, really: we have this great , positive, initiative from the ARRL--finally!-- and you diss it without any good reason, let alone an ALTERNATIVE...
Dennis, what would YOU want the ARRL to do to promote amateur radio to new hams?
