Two weeks ago, the ARRL released the 2017 Annual Report. As you might expect, it highlights the League’s work in supporting disaster relief, not only in Puerto Rico, but also California.While there was some controversy about the role that the ARRL played at the time, I think overall, it was a positive for amateur radio.
