It is interesting to note that when you go to the ARRL site and look at
"headquarters staff" under "contact information," there are at least 6 or 8
people that have "DXCC" something (clerk, assistant, manager, blah blah) in
Apparently, there is more to DXCC than a simple rubber stamp with $0.38
certificates, a $0.27 envelope, and $0.98 postage...
I know little about ARRL finances, only what they choose to tell us.
However, I doubt any of them works for under $175/day (fully loaded). Times
6, that figures out to about 135 $10 "stamps" per day, every day. I'm sure
the program costs the ARRL plenty, over-and-above the $10.
Reality bites doesn't it?
