A while back ARRL boasted that U.S. Hams numbered around 620,000... yet the ARRL membership sits at around 152,000 from what I've been able to gather from email & forums. Let's not forget that there are still a lot of Life Members as well who pay zero into membership coffers. Does ARRL really represent all hams ???

Well, yes. But ARRL as a membership organization has additional goals not directly related to those stated. I imagine they would tend to go with whatever get the "numbers" up.
