Correct John - you  have seen through the whole stinking, 
disgusting mess..  I was a loyal League member for 
several decades. However, they have gone from bad to 
worse up there.

It is a shame, and they have done a LOT to ruin amateur radio.

I dropped my membership a year or two ago, I am less 
active in amateur radio than I used to be, and the actions 
of ARRL and some other misguided groups are the reason.

I still enjoy a good QSO now and then, but the amateur service
is dying a painful death.
