Count me in as one of the same!

I was a member - ONCE - not to be one AGAIN!

The only thing I ever heard was from my rep once a month or quarter,

That was when I figured it wasn't doing anything for me!

Regards, Bob - N0DGN

Even though the ARRgghhL is supposed to be the voice of all hams, they have not represented my interests in the last 2 decades. I'll tag 'em at the FCC queue!
