    N6AA is exactly the kind of person we on the BOD. Is there a video anywhere of the presentation he gave that he was censured for? I would love to see that also.

    For me personally his horrible behavior is just stunning. It might be time to install metal detectors at every entrance to every ARRL building(s).:eek:

    Words you should never hear when a director describes a prior boarding meeting:

    -- eviscerated

    well, since in a disaster zone, a responders Family and property security and safety are primary, the locals will probably not be available immediately after an event, there needs to be mutual aid from outside the immediate area. This is how the Red Cross functions. Its how Amateur immediate response to an event SHOULD function. There should be properly trained, equipped teams that have credentials approved and recognized by the local gendarmes, so travel is not a problem.

    In place hams have a role, but only after they can respond without worrying about their family or property. In place hams can provide local ground truth to the authorities. But they have to have
    functional home based emergency powered stations and useable antennas.

    Well no:)

    KK4DCX is a great example: no power or antenna at his PR home, so he walked down the road and set up shop at the AM radio station (which was down); threw up a 20M dipole; tapped onto their generator; and sent 4000+ H&W and ECOMM traffic:)

    It was not at his home, but it is in the true spirit of Amateur Radio operators ability to improvise and
    use whatever is at hand. Did he bring his amateur radio set with him, or did he use the AM stations transmitter?

    Herb KK4DCX is a shining role model of a great SSB radio op. It's a shame he didn't get more accolades through ARRL media. But, he wasn't a member of the Faux O'Fiddy.

    Here is an audio clip of him passing traffic to K2PAA. Listen to the crisp diction and use of phonetics. Calm and steady. Thousands of messages passed through horribly low SNR HF propagation, sooner and reportedly with a higher overall throughput rate, then realized with the later deployed digi modes / Winlink.

    My gut feeling about ARPA is it will be more of a success than a failure... That's if it can get passed.....

    The guy is a useless jerk. Combative, disruptive, elitist, self absorbed, I know more than you. He should be tossed out on his useless rear along with the entire ARRL board.

    Thanks for posting. I was unable to attend the session. I did ask Mike if there would be an archive. He was not certain, but anyone didn't think anyone would want to listen to an audio file. Well, he was certainly wrong, especially since I am represented by him and concerned with the recent happenings.

    I don't see some of the things happening that Mike is accused of, other than a condescending tone. If he does not like the downside of leadership then he should get out. Comparing the ARRL conduct with it's members as similar to his union, and the national level of corporations is laughable. The BOD should not be working for the corporation, but the MEMBERS. Without us, there is no ARRL, well, at least there should be no ARRL without members. However, it seems they are not a focused on membership as they should be. The declining numbers speak volumes.

    I did get the sense that if you disagree with Mike, it becomes personal for him. I may be wrong, but he comes across that way when blowing off at least one person. Consenting opinion offers positive outcomes many times. Leaders are not always right.

    Is it inexcusable schadenfreude to rhetorically ask "Who's dead wood now?" Asking for a friend.
