Well Jim,

Way back when QST printed contest results, I wud ck them out dreaming one
day I wud show up as the winner.

As consolation, I cud find my call near the bottom of the pack. Then, hard
times hit the QST division & they had to cut costs by eliminating a few
pages a couple times a year.

So, since contest results were the only thing I read in QST, I thot I cud
cut costs as well by not renewing my ARRL membership.

Things went well for a while, QST & I did not miss each other. Now, I'm
feeling guilty for not responding to the numerous DX QSLs I receive. Plus, I
recently discovered I must be a member of ARRL to get a sticker for my DXCC.
So, it appears big corporate America takes another round from the little guy
. ARRL, the checks in the mail. J



PS Can we revisit contest results in printed QST?

Why aren't you a member? Lots of good reasons to be a member, can't 

think of any reasons not to.

Is there any way to send numerous DX QSLs to numerous other countries other
than via ARRLs outgoing DX QSL service?

I'm not an ARRL member is the reason I'm asking.
