My club is expensive, $40 a year. My club's officers maintain the point of view that the primary purpose of Field Day is to introduce amateur radio, especially HF, to the great unlicensed public.
We moved our Field Day site this past year, and the top consideration was how visible it would be for passing foot traffic and how attractive it would be for would-be hams.
Most members of the club are friendly and will pause to answer a question.
One member heard of my plight when setting up a VHF/UHF antenna outside. He came over the next day with two different antenna analyzers, and gave me lots of his time, asking nothing in return.
The club has over 220 members, most of whom don't seem to be active.
Maybe they just want to be able to use any of the club repeaters, guilt-free.
Be careful that you don't view the whole club negatively just because one guy has lost sight of what's important. If the whole club is like that, then yeah, it's time to move on.
