This weekend’s ARRL Board of Directors meeting has surely stirred up the proverbial hornet’s nest of controversy.  The story has gone viral in the Amateur Radio Community, with both criticism and praise for the ARRL’s efforts to revise its “Code of Conduct” and other internal management procedures.  Many radio amateurs are deeply concerned about the transparency of items discussed at ARRL Board meetings and what happens to directors who oppose board policies.

In this video from “HamRadioNow”, David (W0DHG) and Gary (KN4AQ) catch up on the final details of all proposals that are before the ARRL Board of Directors meeting this weekend.
