Fixing arrl

I've invested 55 years in this great hobby
and I won't give up without a struggle. I
have three letters into ARRL CEO and
president this week. All are suggestions
you'd like. I'm awaiting responses. Will let
you know. I am hopeful we can turn this
organization around.

And I'd like to see that happen in this "Survey" column itself,
as well. This question has been up now since the 19th of

I would like to see something on QRP building. An introduction into soldering, electronics and how to build a low powered transceiver, and anything such as 1:1, 4:1 baluns, that can be used in the hobby. We have become to much of appliance operators, yes we tinker and build antennas, but could anyone that is a ham now (not the old timers) build a radio, or trace down a problem they are having.
Posted by WD8WV on 2018-05-14


Some of us are blessed with huge antennas and
powerful rigs. When not in use for 5NNing,
they should QRM intruders in our bands. The
authorities do nothing. We must do something.

Dumping the worthless ARRL & moving on.The
sooner they fold their worthless tents & go
away the better Amateur Radio in the USA
will be.They are totally useless & have been
for many years.They are so far out of
contact with reality & it shows when you
look at their pathetic membership numbers
compared to the number of Amateur Operators
in the USA.They request stupid changes like
giving Technician Class Amateurs more HF
band usage & hope it goes thru so they will
maybe pick up a few more members from the
Tech Class hams who feel like they owe them
something.They are a backwards thinking
bunch of clowns who only care about money.

Forums in eHam:

I vary on my interest in following forums. It
mostly has to do with a personal goal or
project I plan to deal with. I prefer forums
that keep in getting input.

Antenna Choices

I would appreciate some guidance from the Members
out there on choosing an antenna for SWL. I live on
the top floor of an apartment building, but have a
clear view of the Pacific Ocean 3 miles away. Per my
landlord, no wires are allowed on the roof, or
anything positioned outside a window, so my choices
are limited. I have researched the pros and cons of
various antennas and have come down to 3: an
Active Loop Antenna, an Active Antenna, and an
Amplified Loop Antenna. The cost range is from $20
to $180. I'm wondering which would be more
effective and/or suitable for a World Band Receiver
like a Tecsun PL-880 or Sangean ATS-909. I look
forward to each Comment. Thanks.

I have 10 acres and would like to see if I put
an insulator on each post. I would be near
dead center. That would give about 1830 ft for
a receive antenna.

Not clear choices given to check off in this Survey. Equipment and general Band Operation Forums seem to take root with beginners and seasoned Hams alike. '73, AA7LX.

I'd like to see some beginners articles on our

Therefore, we will be prepared to enter the

Forum - hit-counter

DIY's, but like so many forums here the topics often get hijacked or used as open personal bantering or ego postings.

Since the forums are inadequately policed the forums are almost useless.

BUT keep that eHAM hits-counter toggling it keeps the advertising profit rates up.

The Forum “Mobile Hams” seems to be aimed at Hams
while driving . Maybe this could be divided for
discussions by roving Hams in the field ie. camping,
SOTA, field day.

I do not follow any Forums in eHam, if I need information I will check out the forums at that time. I will say though, that I do find useful information when I do check them out.

My interests are too varied to follow any specific forums, but that is just me.
