There is an unknown here which I would have no control over. The op at the other end may very well have copied my call correctly but typed it wrong. I've done it myself. I did it on Field Day this ye

Show of hands - how many of you feel a letdown after the contest ends ... not because you lost or didn't do as well as you hoped you'd do, but rather just because the contest was over? (I raise my ha

It always seemed to me the thing with 13 wpm was that the characters were the same length/speed as about 10 wpm, but the character spacing was reduced to make the speed faster. When 15 wpm was sent,

The only thing I can see wrong with the website survey is that some members aren't on Internet. Maybe it should be announced in the front pages QST that a survey is being done at the website. This ma

I'll bet most members and quite a few of the officials of the ARRL don't even know its history. I had the luxury of being in a radio club that had a library of QST's going back to the 20's and having

It would be interesting to know how many of those 160,000 members are active on the air. The 25,000 callsigns noted show these people ARE active and on the air. Same with the 10,000 contesters. It wo

There seems to be a number of people who get fascinated with RADIO. I don't think it has ever been a large percentage of the population. When I was in high school, 4 out of a total of about 800 stude

This whole thing brings up several interesting questions. Who ARE these mysterious majority of ARRL members? What do they do with ham radio? What do THEY want out of the ARRL, or do they even care? T
