Have you seen the price of refrigerators lately? Everything is experiencing hyper-inflation for a falling dollar value. When was the last dues increase, I can't remember? Considering the cost of everything I encounter, this is definitely a NO big deal! My cell phone bill is $75- per month. How much is your monthly internet cost? We are talking $49- PER  YEAR! Hmmm that works out $4.08 per month, can ya afford it? If you are a serious QSLer via Bureau, you will save way more than that. They are also the ONLY lobby we have with the government.

Really? Here are a few Google hits for a search on "dollar rising."

I dont care still pretty good compared to the others  and has a great mag. 


  The increase if calculated over the years that it remained the same is still less than inflation.    it was time.   

Id also point out that the ARRL is one of the lowest cost national organizations   far less than say Radio Amateurs of Canada, RSGB and The Wireless Institute of Australia   so Im not complaining.
