You are right on, Jerry!  I can tell you from direct experience that 
ARRL HQ is dominated by egos and has FAR less technical expertise than 
one would like to believe.  There is no technical editing of most league 
publications, including QST.  N0AX is doing a fine job with annual 
upgrades of the Handbook, with help from some other fine engineers, but 
it's an uphill battle with entrenched egos and misconceptions held by 
folks with little or inadequate technical education.  Every time I open 
QST I find something that makes me cringe (and often more than one thing).

BTW -- there are also SCREAMING errors in the question pools.
