    Always amazing to see the number of hams who gather and hoard every difference of opinion, misstep, error, and slight (real or imagined) by the ARRL over decades and nurse it to feed their personal fires of vitriol and hate.

    ARRL has ruined ham radio. Right.

    Why would FEMA want to run ANYTHING through the NTS?

    Is it inefficient?

    The truth will come out regarding this situation. The ARRL Executive Committee was embarrassed by the high quality performance of NTS assets during the Cascadia Rising exercise. As a matter of fact, the ARRL accusations are untrue.

    Mr. Ames, as NTS Eastern Area Chair, was contacted by FEMA. As a matter of fact, FEMA has even written a letter in defense of Mr. Ames clearly stating this. Mr. Ames also kept ARRL management informed of all communications with FEMA during the planning for Cascadia Rising.

    During the exercise, NTS transferred messages across country to the FEMA National Response Coordinating Center with greater than 99.99 percent accuracy in minutes. NTS has the data collected from piles of exercise evaluation logs and the associated metrics to prove it.

    Simply put; NTS performance embarrassed a couple of "ambulance chaser" types in positions of influence in the ARRL and now it's payback time. The League is a filthy, corrupt organization. The facts are simple.

    1. Mt. Ames did not violate any ARRL policies and the paperwork is available to prove it.
    2. It was FEMA who reached out to NTS. FEMA has verified this.
    3. NTS proved they could do the job and verified it with data and metrics.

    Some QRZ members should be ashamed of themselves for making assumptions and forming opinions without the truth.

    Trust me! The truth is coming out and you will see how politically corrupt some at the ARRL are.

    In America we don't care about corruption, we elect it over and over again. So even if your allegations and accusations are true, will anyone notice?.....Did anyone involved try to use the ladies room? Now that's important.
