    I get the fact, we as members shouldn't leave the ARRL over this one issue, as we all have a say (somewhat) on who is elected (to a point unless the ARRL makes accusations on "ethics" and withdraws a person from the election as we have seen). But my question would be, WHEN is enough, really ENOUGH?

    In my years, the only way to hurt those who are high on their pedestals, is to knock them off! Unless this starts happening, I don't see anything positive coming forth.

    The "gag order" is seriously going to ruin the ARRL if it doesn't change for the better of and for the members. After all, its the members who make the ARRL what it is. Why should I continue to dump my hard earned money ("dues") into an organization when they continue to "gag order" the Directors and not allow members to know what is going on.

    So again, the never answered question that always gets pushed aside and receives a drawn-out answer of nonsense (beat around the bush response), "When Is Enough, ENOUGH"?

    Agree totally and did the same thing: dumped my ARRL subscription. And yes, I know that it won't hurt them much but I can't see giving them another penny while they ruin HR.

    Well, they should be THRILLED to be on your show and explain their actions! Why are they hiding?

    I wrote to the CEO and he told me that there would be no savings to the ARRL if they offered an digital only subscription... How is that possible? If you don't print a paper issue and mail it out, there has to be some savings! Just another HARD NOSED approach by the league!

    There is also the reduction in ad revenue to consider. Advertisers pay more for print advertising. Advertising is still a big component of income for the ARRL.

    Also, there are costs associated with providing things digitally. People forget usernames and passwords.

    Well, Tom DID say that... however, what is the difference in an electronic ad and one on paper? Same number of eyeballs looking at it! I still don't see the difference.
