We have 3 ARRL members in our home.  We recognize the
value, and the greater potential value, of the ARRL.

However, by their own admission, their only effort to
communicate 2-way with their members was via editorials
in QST to which those few who read them were invited to

They admitted also that they made *no* effort to communicate
at all with the majority of Hams who are not members.

No wonder they were shocked when so many were unhappy with
their proposals and who questioned their motives - directly
to the FCC.

Ham Radio is a 2-way communications hobby, it is a shame that
our only representative body communicates only via broadcasting,
receiving only occasional notes from functional "SWL's".
