The RAIN Report operates on an annual budget of $1,250, which includes more than $500.00 of expenses resulting from transportation, lodging and food related to the Dayton Hamvention. Well over 50% of RAIN programming is excerpted from Hamvention forums that Hap records in all four rooms with the approval of the Dayton Amateur Radio Assoc. The remaining $700.00 results from charges incurred by Internet and web-hosting services, computer maintenance and updates. No one connected with the Radio Amateur Information Network or the RAIN Report receives compensation from or for his/her efforts, and that includes Hap Holly/KC9RP, who spends on the average of 5 hours a week in the production of the RAIN Report and the distribution of it. Now in the spirit of full disclosure: Only DARA, (the Dayton Amateur Radio Assoc.) And NSRC (the North Shore Radio Club of IL.) make annual donations to RAIN. Having said that, RAIN is not a tax deductible or tax exempt organization. All donors will be acknowledged both here and on the RAIN Report if requested. Hope you can help.
