The complete minutes are interesting.  They'd be more interesting if we had a news reporter/analyst providing interpretation, especially regarding the ethics discussions.

great,  if it is not a condescending move,,, "OK you told us, set down and shut up" type of thing...there is a lack of trust felt on my part here,,, then again I went through incentive licensing where the ARRL took away what we had and we were rewarded by having  to regain what we already had.
it is ironic that we have to take measures to fight our own organization  for our right vs, what the ARRL is proposing.
The ARRL  should be advancing our rtty  bands, etc,, not taking away to accommodate special groups.
