    None of those names are familiar but calls may help. I moved to the Boston area in 1963 when I left USN active duty and worked for National Radio until 69. Moved to NH in 67 and then Chicago in 70 for Sanders Associates and back to NH in 73 to stay!

    Ham since 1955

    That figure is the total pay and benefits for the entire paid ARRL staff. And, as you point out, it went down $271,358 - about 4%.

    ----

    It seems to me that some folks think the ARRL should be run entirely by volunteers, who get no pay, benefits or expenses at all.

    I don't remember all their calls :(. but they worked for Gerber Radio Supply (aka Gerber Electronics)

    Cant remember ever going there as it was well out of my way for electronics shopping. I mainly covered the roughly Rt 1 and 128 area between Lynn and Needham and in towards Boston where the surplus shops and distributors were located.

    I did get to the Norwood Arena Raceway during my stock car driving days but soon moved to The Pines Speedway in Groveland and and also a couple of NH tracks which were a lot closer when I moved. Continued in the Chicago area a few years and then back in NH but drifted away when I got serious about ham contesting. Still go to some of the summer reunions but so many are dying off

    My $0.02 cents. I gave up the ARRL back in the 70's when they permitted ads from NAMBLA (North American Man Boy Love Association). Yes ... it is a real organization and it promotes acceptance of exactly what the name implies. Sick ... sick ... sick . Any organization that allows that kind of perverted filth is not interested in anything except money.

    (rest removed to avoid CoC violation)

    Exactly when did they allow such ads? What QST issues have them?

    Is there any evidence that the folks at HQ knew what the organization was about?

    Is it possible they were misled into running the ads?

    And....is there anyone who was there in the 1970s who is still part of the staff?

    That's a pretty serious allegation, WB4IME ... I hope you have evidence handy to back this up.

    IME's confused. ARRL started running ads for a gay ham organization. Not the same thing. But this is just another example of how bogus crap gets spread so quickly.
