What does the ARRL do for me.

I am rather new I was told to join the ARRL. 50 bucks a year is steep for what you offer. I did it and then renewed for a second year. I have seen nothing to support me in DC. Now the FCC wants 50 bucks. What do you plan to do to support me? I feel I have made a mistake even getting involved.

Sorry you are disappointed.

We have tried to get legislation passed that would prevent HOAs from overly restricting antennas. After all, there are similar laws--OTARD and Freedom to Display the American Flag Act of 2005.

As for what we are going to do now, about possible FCC fees, that is something to discuss with your Division Director, Tom, W3TOM.

I consider ARRL membership to be one of the best bargains in amateur radio. In addition to gaining access to four (!) different magazines, there are the product review archives, LOTW, the outgoing QSL service, and the ARRL's advocacy on behalf of all American hams in Washington.

The ARRL consists primarily of volunteers like myself. In addition to asking what the ARRL plans to do to support you, you might also consider asking what you can do to support the ARRL. The future of Amateur Radio is very uncertain, but I do know that the ARRL is our best bet for ensuring its survival.

p.s. You never mentioned what kind of support it is that you need. If you tell us, someone might be able to assist you.
