And the digital ones you can program externally: dead band width, speed, epa... all that stuff. The programmer unit costs about 80 bucks, depending on where you buy it.

I think this is the right place to bring this up. I just took a quick look at the IRSA website. It seems that they have passed a new provision where they are paying out of IRSA funds the personal airfare and a per diem so that an IRSA rep can attend the IOM Worlds. Smells like an unnecessary junket to me and a bad use of the IRSA dues and fees (if any) paid by the IOM Worlds. And it seems a particularly unnecessary expense in today's age of skype and a camera in virtually every phone and computer....

It would seem that at least one person attending the race to either race or help must be involved with IRSA and could report to IRSA whatever it is IRSA is interested in knowing. No additional cost to anyone.

Where does IRSA get their money?

Each member country pays annual 'dues' to the IRSA based on the number of members they have. However, the IRSA has not levied 'dues' for a number of years as they did not need any money, they had money in the bank. The IRSA also gets a fee froma class that is hosting a World Championship. So the IOMICA pays the iRSA for the right to host the worlds in Foster City. This is the source of the funds to cover the cost of the on-sight IRSA Rep.

The IRSA motion about the observer suggests that the nearest IRSA member should be the designated person - Jim Atkinson is the IRSA Officer of the Americas and is the closest IRSA officer to the event. He lives in California.

I'm not sure if that suggestion is being followed. I've heard that the IRSA Chsirman from the UK is going to attend the upcoming Iom Worlds, but I could be wrong.
