After talking to "officers" on MANY issues, and over MANY years, I found 
myself voting with my feet also.

I never went over personal petty issues.  Each one was/is a VERY 
significant one.

Currently, the issue IS BPL.  We have it here in Manassas, VA.

It is well documented, recorded, analyzed, and etc.  Hollingsworth is 
VERY well aware of ALL, as IS the ARRL.  Net?  We STILL have BPL!  So 
what has the work, effort, and dues gotten us?  Z-E-R-O.
