Yup. Maybe that was a bad example...I meant the ARRL could petition congress and use "The voice of ham radio" to try to have a bill crafted that would ban dipole antennas...and all we could do is watch. So maybe that example is a stretch. Now that there's a lot more information available on the proposed Appendix B, or the Code of Conduct, it's clear that there are bigger problems than just the number of people voting. But, I'm backing out of that discussion. I've written to all Directors and Vice-Directors with my concerns, and those concerns have been validated. I've shared some ARRL links and taken my lumps here on the Zed (not the first time! LOL), and now it's time to play the waiting game. We'll see what happens Friday. I've been a member of the ARRL for 25 years, but based on the outcome of Friday's meeting, I don't know what the future holds. Everyone will make their own decision, and I hope the ARRL continues to thrive in the coming years with or without me, but that's really up to them.
