Screw the ARRL National Convention and Bob Heil ... the DX,
Contest, and Antenna forums have been the most popular and
best attended forums year in and year out. Why should ARRL
and Bob Heil push aside the very groups that fill up the
downtown hotels and support Hamvention year after year?
W8OK would be rolling over in his grave ...
I predict that attendance this year will be lower than it has
been anytime in the last 10 years ... and that next year will
be still lower yet.
