That development program only works with a dynamic, non self serving group of non partisan individuals, that don't have their collective personal agendas in front of the ARRL's members. Along with executing efficiently the programs that are deemed worthy by the Members of the ARRL. Easy to see personal agendas abound at the top of the ARRL unfortunately. Who actually owns all of the real property now in the possession of the ARRL? If the members do not own this real property, who/what entity does? Nobody knows? Simple questions, yet can't be answered by the mouthpieces for some reason why. No answers to the "lying by omission" query from the mouthpieces as of yet. What the mouthpieces have left out of the donation/W1AW OP time project is the fact that the FCC has given written waivers to their pecuniary many times in the past. So why haven't the mouthpieces offered up this information in this thread, when laying out all of their supposed reason for why the project can't happen? Are they so inept, that they did not know the FCC has issued these waivers in the past, or is it they have their own personal agenda in the forefront of their actions and not the member's best interest. So we have poison A that the legal herd is inept, not keeping up with legal instruments that directly effect AR. Or poison B, that they have their own fiefdom they are running up yonder at their leisure? So the development committee is nothing more then a smoke and mirrors subterfuge action and has little to no real merit, or bring much needed change to this sinking ship. Do I know for 100% certain that the donation/W1AW OP time project will be a "success"? I can tell you honestly, I can't predict the final outcome, donation wise but a lot of folks do operate at W1AW when allowed to use the Member's property and ARRL sponsored/WW contests do attract a lot of AR OPs to the bands. I will sure donate money to the club if this project does happen.
