I know it's not in the public domain but shouldn't it server the Public?
Sounds to me like you have some kind of exclusive club of insiders, that
doesn't sound to public to me.

I think your reading this wrong. I haven't seen anybody type anything that
appears to alter the wishes of Roger. If this alters his wishes I wish
instead of getting up set with people that are just curious you'd really
explain _how_ this could possible alter Roger's wishes. I can't imagine
anybody that would wish extra work on his friends after he is gone if there
was a way to lighten their work load.

Then those non-hams join Ham Radio email lists and complain about not being
able to register...correct?

Hate to tell you but the current registration process isn't completely fool
proof either. I know a Ham (can't say who) that registered somebody else's
call and it when through just fine. If the registration process is there to
stop fowl play then it should have stop that as well. When this other Ham
registered somebody else's call he could have easily been a non-ham
registering a Ham's call.

P.S. Can we talk about a subject without getting all hot and bothered? There
are several hams like me that have just joined this list and haven't seen
all the past comments. I thought one of the ideas of Ham Radio was the Open
Exchange of Ideas. That means the open exchange of ideas you _don't_ like as
well as those you _do_ like.
