Not everyone in leadership at the League
Has their ears closed
There are leaders that are listening to our concerns
Yet it is a big organization that responds slowly
For one example
The payment plan for Life Membership
Will return as soon as they have the details worked on how to take payments and record them,
The devil is in the details.
I personally am aware of the work to get this payment plan returned.
Is there much more that needs done
Yes a boat load
Are we as amateur radio ops better off With the ARRL, yes of course.
As a DXer, Contest op
I don’t like everything user happening with the Traditional awards
In fact I was Les than ecstatic about the drop of RTTY as a DXCC award category
And grouped into Digital
And would really be pissed if they did thst to CW
I want change not only for myself but other fellow members
Therefore was the reason I wanted to attempt to be a part of the solution at least on the Section level
And became an ARRLNTX SM a little over two years ago.
I continue to be sadden by the number of ARRL members that have little or no clue as to what
ARRL field Service is
Or how to even contact their SM or Division Director
Yet page 15 and 16 of any QST has that info
The ARRL is far from perfect
It is also made up
Of humans that are fellow amateur radio ops
I also know only a very small percent of members even look at the executive board minutes
Which are readily available to all members
Thanks for allowing me to voice my view
