Quote by woosh--if every member here on this site pays two dollars a month, then that's (at the present time) almost 116 thousand dollars a month, almost 1.4 million a year. Now, if all that can be justified, I'm all for it, heck I might would even give a little more.



The Magic Word being If .

Merriam Webster describes the word " If " as - { a: in the event that b: allowing that c: on the assumption that d: on condition that }

With Membership now at 57,950 and growing If Everyone Donated even just $1 per year we would be sitting well . But we all know that isn't going to happen .

Human Nature dictates to many that when the Perception that something is Free then why should a charge/fee be applied to that Commodity .

Prime example being , Let's say we go into a Restaurant . We can only assume that even using the rest room and asking for a glass-o-water has a cost attached to the owner , But they graciously provide them to us for free under the assumption we will trade dollars if not then hopefully at a future date . That being building good will .

This site was set up to pay for it's self and eventually turn-o-profit not as a write off . So Donations are needed to keep it running to the standards of the site owner and Staff with constant improvements to the site and Off Shore Secure Server ( Of Two Sites ) that has price increases constantly with our expanding membership numbers .

So Obviously Donations and or VIP Members are needed to cover the cost$ and Hopefully turn a profit for the investment and time . But the good news is , We Also Welcome Non Donating Members and Visitors to surf our site and learn what they need to get up and running and gather information of future FTA equipment purchases by reading the many Great Equipment Reviews in our receiver review section .

Thanks for being a member and your input ,,,
