The Classic RAIN Ham Cast operates on an annual budget of $500.00, most of which goes to the maintenance of therainreport.com website, internet services, and Windows pc maintenance and upgrade costs. No one connected with the Radio Amateur Information Network or the Classic RAIN Ham Cast receives compensation from or for his/her efforts, and that includes Hap Holly/KC9RP, who was Founder/Producer of the RAIN Report from 1990-2019. Hap recorded the Dayton Hamvention forums annually with help from long-time friend and the man behind the 160 Meter Gateway Radio Newsletter, Vern Jackson/WA0RCR. The RAIN Report archive consists of many excerpts from those Hamvention forum recordings. And the Classic RAIN Ham Cast features previously unreleased ham programming by Hap, who spends some 5 hours producing the biweekly Classic RAIN Ham Cast. Now in the spirit of full disclosure: For a few of the last years of the RAIN Report DARA (the Dayton Amateur Radio Assoc.) And NSRC (the North Shore Radio Club (Highland Park, IL) helped subsidize RAIN. Having said all that, the Radio Amateur Information Network is not a tax deductible or tax exempt organization. All donors will be acknowledged both here and on the Classic RAIN Ham Cast if requested. Hope you can help.
