I know I will be accused of League bashing but here is my point. If I were not a Life Member of the ARRL I would not renew my membership. The contributions the League has made to our hobby via its lobbying the FCC have diminished in number rather remarkably over the past 4-5 years. With that being the case what else does membership provide? QST I have been a QST reader (and author who has written articles published in QST) for most of my nearly 63 years as a ham. Just received the Dec 2020 issue. Without a doubt the thinnest issue I have ever seen. There are but 46 pages of content which have no advertisement on the page. Of the 46 pages 6 are reprints of QST content from many years ago...content I could easily find without it taking up space in the current issue. In short--practically nothing in the issue that contributes to my knowledge base or interests me. So after just a very few minutes looking through the issue it was set aside for me to give to a young, local ham who cannot afford ARRL membership. Maybe he will get something out of it (other than the advertising). I know I didn't.
