    When I first got licensed in 1968 there was a Canadian division of ARRL and the hams who helped me were all members. I never considered not becoming a member. I drifted away from ham radio for many years, but when I got active again in 2009 the first thing I did was join RAC.

    A country's national ham radio association, be it ARRL, RAC, RSGB or other, is the advocate that fights to hang on to our little scraps of spectrum so we can continue being hams. To not pay dues to them so they can keep helping us is selfish and irresponsible IMHO. All the other stuff (magazines, etc) is fluff.

    I am also an ARRL member, partly from nostalgia and partly because I enjoy the fluff.

    Nice work Huston on securing your license. May I suggest you join both, different purposes but both worthy of support. 73 Rich
