So... While I do agree with the sentiments expressed here, I can't help but wonder if the new "CEO" even hears any of this? Judging from the comments of others who have emailed him directly, I would say that the answer is no. If the ARRL continues with this kind of "leadership" many folks, including myself, will be checking out. So when the membership begins diminishing even more, will the folks in the head shed sit up and pay attention? Remains to be seen. I've been a member of "the club" for 3.2 decades. I've also been a member of my local club for the same amount of time. If it every became a point where I had to make a choice of which one to support, it would be no contest. My local club, the one where I can go to any time, where I know the members, the leadership, etc will always get my support. Another vote for the Radio Club of Tacoma (W7DK.org)!
