Bill, VE3MEW, sent us the following comment:
My renewal came up at the first of Nov. I did not renew.
If I spent the $56.00 I would “save” $10.00 on my yearly
Peteborough Amateur Radio Club dues… somehow, the
math does not sound right here…!!
That is a fair chunk of change for 6 little publications
per year that don’t seem to contain much ‘meat’.
I think I get much more from my $39.00 ARRL membership,
even though I am unable to get LOTW to work…!
Years past, I worked my way from Assistant Ontario
Director for CARF up to a Vice President.. Back then,
we actually worked our butts off to serve the amateur
community all across the country.
Bullying, political power struggles and other such idiotics
were not apparent… we had no time for such antics.
The current operating/managing style of RAC has sent
several excellent volunteers down the road. The loss affects
us all and I look forward to the day when the people
responsible are gone…. even if that means taking the whole
RAC organization with them… off into the sunset, never to be
seen or heard again.
