Dig deep, folks - the HF DXers need your money.

This contrasts nicely with the news that the RSGB couldn't spend a few
shillings to pay for a new host for their clubs' web pages. So if you
were in any doubt who runs the RSGB and what they run it for, these two
items illustrate that nicely. Wasn't it rumoured that a Board member
said recently that 'the members are merely along for the ride'?

Does anyone know how much was disbursed last year in support of HF
DXpeditions?

"RSGBTech is meant for everyone", or so the RSGB says. The group is
moderated 'to
ensure that the questions are on topic', but the group's own admissions
policy mention
(a pre-) 'vet', 'known', 'trouble', and 'maker', but not the vetting
policy! None of these are
'moderation' issues and none are mentioned in the RSGB's Guidelines.....
