    My plan is not renewing my membership with the ARRL but with Becky's youtube stream I may reconsider ?
    And do all youtubers drink beer when interviewing ?

    IDK about all Youtubers, but this one after a long week at work does.

    Very uplifting. I feel that maybe (maybe) the ARRL finially gets it, and is stepping up the effort with people like Becky leading the charge. I want to try to contact her in regards to a great CW club/school I belong to, that is online with classes, and the membership is growing each month, with hams from all over the world.

    Excellent! Once upon a time there were Novice licenses and elmers to help new hams get started. It was easy to get help. Now things are different: elmers are fewer and we are more spread out, busy, and isolated as a society. The content here is exactly what newbies need and the format is accessible and familiar in the 21st century. It’s both authoritative and encouraging. And as new hams get eased into the hobby we can reduce isolation and reinforce ham radio as a community.

    The two guys that started the club/school are great guys, love the hobby, and especially CW. Now, due the success of the club, more great teachers have stepped up and teaching more classes each week. They have online classes in a classroom setting, and you have classes for newcomers where they guide you as you work 'in time" a CW QSO. We also have field trips, and QRP outings, and the best part is through word of mouth and other communications venues and methods. The membership is growing fast, and be part of this great club is an honor. To see guys who came in not knowing CW at all (some very little) and in a short period of time on the air making contacts is quite amazing.

    Great idea and thanks for posting!
    I worked two female operators in the NAQP yesterday and that was great to see.

    Very good! The new magazine looks great. I volunteer to be an online Elmer once you get that cranked up.
