Pete, do the Directors not have input to what is presented at/to IARU? 
If so, then we should have access to it directly through out directors 
who would then instruct the seemingly autonomous staff at Newington how 
to vote.

True the ARRL pulled the RM, but why?  I remember reading it was pulled 
by the management of ARRL because of misunderstanding by the ham 
population and ARRL membership which resulted in the flood of FCC 
comment filings and many messages to ARRL.  The communications about 
pulling it inferred that they needed to do a better selling job then 
re-present it to the FCC.
