New ARRL Podcast For New Operators Coming in March

ARRL Launching New Podcast Geared Toward New Radio Amateurs

For those just getting started on their Amateur Radio journey, ARRL is launching a new podcast aimed at answering your questions, providing support and encouragement for newcomers to get the most out of the hobby. The podcast, "So Now What?," will launch on Thursday, March 7, and new episodes will be posted every other Thursday, alternating new-episode weeks with the "ARRL The Doctor is In" podcast.

Online Renewal Works !!!

I know some of you have had problems when trying to renew your memberships, and attempting to us PayPal as part of the process.  It appears that a specific Drupal Module was at fault.  To fix it, I had to completely rebuild the webform page from start, which along with the problem solving took me most of the day yesterday. 

So the bottom line is the Membership Renewal page is working like it should today.  Interestingly because the page was made slightly differently, the Application for Membership page worked perfectly throughouit.
