ARRL policies and practices k1vsk on 1/5/19
The policy is for members to write to their Division Director.
Anytime you have a concern, comment or just want to say, "Thank you for volunteering", just write to them. Each time a proposal comes up, the information about it is posted as news on arrl.org and it is also printed in QST. If you don't want to write, you have an option to use the telephone, as Division Director phone numbers are published in QST. That system has worked since Day One.

Thank you for the comments. I have two of them. They are very warm and comfortable and the color is pleasing.
One radio for all bands? michaeldisney on 12/11/18
The Yaesu FT-991A and the Icom IC-7100 also have 160-6, 2 and the 70 cm Amateur bands.
Power Question jcma05855 on 30/10/18
I have an FT-990. Mine does the same thing; the power output jumps around wildly when adjusting that control. The RF Power Output control is intermittent, like a dirty volume control. This is certainly to be expected from a 25 year old transceiver. I've never tried giving it a shot of contact cleaner, or know if it can be cleaned up.
Radiogram QSO K8SMH on 6/6/18
Victor,

http://www.arrl.org/nts

You can find your local traffic net in the net directory that you can check into and send your messages, including one to initiate a QSO. I've received Radiograms from across the country in matter of hours; some took two or three days. Our "Relay" organization has many, many volunteers dedicated to passing traffic, all practice for when its needed in an emergency.
