    The Amateur Radio Club of El Cajon, California passed away on October 14, 2010. The cause of death was the massive internal division.

    Born in 1960, the ARCEC had a distinguished history of community service and will be greatly missed by it's members.

    No services will be held. In lieu of flowers, the family of former members requests that donations be sent to the ARRL.

    Amateur Radio Club of El Cajon is alive and well

    Carl KJ6BSO, you know this is not true. On October 14th, the President of the Club was removed from office for a number of reasons. This action of the membership certainly didn't cause the Club to die.

    The members of the Amateur Radio Club of El Cajon are now picking up the pieces and starting the rebuilding process..new website, etc.. With elections coming in December, I'm confident that our Club's new leadership team will once again strive to make the Amateur Radio Club of El Cajon the strong and vibrant Club's it's always been known to be.

    Carl I have to agree with Steve. The club is still alive and will come back even stronger than it was before. New (and more) lines of communication, new energy, new volunteers, etc. What you've posted about the club being dead is simply false information.

    Sleazeball Lies To All Hams; The Worst of Ham Spirit

    Carl:

    What incredible humor you displayed in fabricating a story of the demise of the ARCEC, due to "a massive internal division." What a humorous way you use to describe what I would call a long-overdue house-cleaning. No longer will the ARCEC be the pariah of local ham clubs, we are on the way to honesty, decency, openness, fiduciary responsibility and, oh the wonder of it all, service to club members in place of blind fealty to our "leaders."

    It's too bad that you have self-declared on the side of the problem, and not chosen to be part of the solution.

    Carl, I don't know what your motivation is to post such ironiouse information here, but I think it is shameful. Maybe you don't care about the club, since you have told othe members you are not renewing your membership, but why would you do something so low as to post information that is simply not true.?
    Maybe it is for the best that you are leaving the club! I know several members who are looking to the future with great expectations for this wonderful old organization as we make plans to push forward into the next fifty years. It's Going to be Great!

    Amateur Radio Club of El Cajon is not dead!!!

    The author of the post, must not really be aware of everything going on. Here are the facts:

    The members of the club felt that the past President was not doing his job as dictated by the bylaws of the club, so they removed him from office. This is the way things should be done to other elected officials, even in government. Some of you may remember when Gray Davis was removed from the office of Governor for the State of California.

    To be brief, the club has suffered a small fracture. It has now been stinted and is on the road to a full recovery.

    I have been a proud member of this club since 1991!!

    This is how things are suppose to work, when things go wrong.
    Wish I lived closer, I would become a member.

    My post was meant to be satirical, of course. The club may live on in some respects but it will never be the same club it was. The damage done was too deep.

    In any case, it will live on without me. I will not participate in any club activities and will allow my membership to lapse.

    Apparently, Floyd, satire is beyond someone who uses words such as ironiouse, which I cannot find in any dictionary I own...

    And how would you know anything about this, Sue? Your post here is pointless, to say the least, since you are not a member of the club.
