Hi David,

Did you mean to say ARRL here? If you did, can you explain how 44/8 ended
up with an organization unaffiliated with ARRL? One that I'll note:

a. Has no public participation (unlike ARRL which has open membership and
b. Was established only this decade at ARIN's urging
c. Is a 501(c)3 organization which has announced but not yet delivered
plans for reducing its administrative overhead from 100%.
