Hi Andy
You may be one of the more tolerable members of the RSGB and I know you make incredilbly good, valuable and open source contributions to the hobby. For that I thank you.
Having said that, there is an insufferable group within the RSGB especially on VHF that make peoples life a misery when you or a group try to do things out of the ordinary but definitly not affecting any one else's use of the bands. 
I can site an issue on 5megs would you believe, a band I thought that was clear of the deaded policeman since it was an NoV band and not a band hijacked by the RSGB. I joined the 5meg new band proposal discussion group only for that to start again. I just won't stand for jumped up people insulting me like that any more, sorry. So I resigned "no great loss" I can hear you say.
I have been licensed since the early 70's and built gear and operated regularly but I get very depressed when people still try to "Boss" you about in the name of the RSGB.
And anyway 51 quid a year is way too much and who's pocket does go into, one has the right to ask?
I know I am tollerated on this reflector and could be barred at the drop of a hat, so be it, but if an organisation like the RSGB can't look in the mirror it will never change, it hasn't in the last 40years so its unlikely to now.
And no I won't resign off this reflector you will have to push me off because this is the one bright light MF/LF and ELF.

Yes, and if more peolple joined it might come down, and all the behind the scenes stuff could go ahead.
But instead members get upset leave over little local issues.   (I nearly did it once myself some years ago, but saw sense in time)

All the more reason to become a member of RSGB if you aren't already.
I was going to join the other day, after entering one of their 6m contests, but was shocked to see the sub is £51. Would have joined there and then if it had been more like £25.
Locally we have also over the years had many problems with the RSGB over repeater licences. For instance, some of their requirements for our ATV repeater could not be met - they were only suitable for 'phone repeaters - and the endless delays...
Vy 73,
