Charles, did you read the proposal? Give me some examples of
ARRL attacks on RHR, please. The entire audience needs to see
them. Tell me about a proposed rule change that would make RHR
contacts ineligible for DXCC. I'm not aware of any.

My thoughts on this matter:
If you really want the hobby to grow and live, you need to bring
more youth in to the hobby. What Remote Ham Radio is doing is
amazing for the hobby and is really blessing youth like me. I
have had some wonderful opportunities thanks to RHR. I have been
fortunate to be a part of two record breaking fully-remote M/M
contest operations, in the midst of this pandemic. Being 13
years old it makes it difficult to get permission to and travel
to superstations for contest operating… being able to have those
same experiences remote has really been a blessing.
And you are proposing a rule change that would make remote
operating not qualifiable for DXCC? That is stupid.
Honestly it seems that the ARRL has been attacking RHR in many
different ways recently. This proposed rule change just seems
like you are trying to tear RHR down… is it just me or does it
not seem like merely a coincidence?
The ARRL needs to concentrate their efforts somewhere that will
ACTUALLY do something for youth in the hobby, instead of a rule
change that will do HARM for youth.
Look toward the
FUTURE, not to the past. Remote operating is only going to help
the hobby, and trying to get rid of it is detrimental and will
be regretted later.
