    I heard there was a rift at the ARRL, and then people were asked to leave. I've been there twice, and I confess I am shocked they did not charge for a tour.

    What bothers me about the ARRL, they are tone deaf to their customers, everything costs money with the ARRL, and their publications are God awful.

    I'd love to see an ARRL manual WITHOUT instructions for projects I will never do or even have an interest in. Give me tables: light bulbs, Q-signs, resistors, tubes, instructions on how to attach an PL-269 or N-connector, how repeaters work, HF Propagation, antenna basics, oh safety - can't for forget safety! Get back to basics. for an annual, the ARRL goofs it up, annually.

    ??

    After K1ZZ left there was a reduction in staff count to save money.

    There were several folks who retired recently, who actually were asked to stay on for a while several years ago. Haven't heard about any rift.

    Can we go back to guessing about Solar Cycle 25? That "Might" be more fun....

    And it’s not an acronym.

    It stands for Hiram A. Maxim who invented HAM.

    Can you cite your source please. I can’t find any such person with the middle initial “A”.

    I thought his treatment of “Jim” was rude and out of order.

    Enjoyable interview however and he came across much better. Great Job, Steve.

    I don't get the negativism regarding NA2AA.

    In the past, the issues were the autocracy of the ARRL CEO, and whether the CEO actually got on the air. These aren't issues for NA2AA.

    Do you guys WANT a new CEO every six months? If you keep it up no one will even consider taking that job....who needs that level of abuse?

    Why can't Ham radio be like CB? I mean I never lived in the day when CB was "Alive" but it sounds better then this totalitarian hypocrisy we live in today with ham radio. In CB radio we only had to listen to the FCC and half the time we didn't even listen! With Ham Radio we are forced to comply with everything the FCC says because of the ARRL VM program (A.K.A. Snitch program). It's all very stupid and if the new CEO is taking suggestions, mine is take away the snitches.
