    Truth is, I really don’t follow ARRL on anything other than their website. If an interesting link shows up elsewhere, such as on this blog, for example, I might click on it.

    Routine use of twitter or facebook, forget it–too many twits tweeting, and I don’t try to ‘friend’ the whole world…that’s what radios are for, IMHO…
