    That's not thinking; that's hallucinating.

    I don't know why they're making such a big deal over the 10-meter contact to Argentina LU4HK.
    There's been trans-equator All Summer Long to North America on 10 12 15 and 17.
    Even last summer with no sunspots I made several nice contacts to South America weekly.

    Is there a legitimate need for four Amateurs at any license level? Taking one to four scientists/engineers/specialists and having them get licensed is one thing - sending aloft four Extra class licensees with little to no additional scientific/space experience and or education is a waste of flight hours.

    Hi Tom,

    Just received an election "email flyer" from my New England Division Director. I found something within said flyer which might shed some light on the soon-to-be open position of Treasurer in January 2022. Here's the text:

    "Investment Management Committee. Reading the back pages of the ARRL Annual report, I discovered that the ARRL has an endowment of ~$40 million, and it has been managed for at least 40 years by ONE GUY, basically unsupervised. We’ve been lucky. They were good, honest, CPAs. But the supervision by the ARRL Board’s Administration & Finance Committee was superficial, because Board members generally have little or no experience in investment management. I created a position paper that convinced the Board to create an Investment Management Committee (IMC). The IMC will recommend a professional money management team to the full Board in January 2022. It’s your money, and we’re supposed to take care of it. I’m making that happen. The result? We will be able to afford to what we need to do to advance Amateur Radio for us and the next generation."

    Innocent coincidence or otherwise?
