I agree whole heartily with Barry's comments above, but since "we"
elected them, I belive we are entitled to a complete explanation.

Again, I agree 100%. Unfortunately, I am stuck with a life membership,
which at the price I paid, has been more than a great bargin. But, if
ARRL continues to fill its pages with "junk" devoted to the least
informed of amateurs, I will consider giving up that membership, just
to remove my name from the membership list.

I personally wish there was an alternative organization. I know that's
bound to be a wish, but I sincerely deplore the decline of this hobby
I have loved for 47 years.

I've said it before, but I believe the only way to change it is to
replace the Directors with those more representative of our interests.
