AIUI, CQ Publications had been developing this compilation CD through
its 'Comms Quarterly' magazine, which was supposed to be a successor to
'HR'. The project was at the review stage when the mag folded, and was
bought by ARRL and merged into 'QEX'. 

It's very good that the project has been revived and brought to market.

John, please can you give us a bit more information on the method of
presentation (PDF?) and also the indexing and searching capabilities? 

Presumably they are scanned graphics images of the pages, so it wouldn't
be possible to search for individual words or phrases within the text.
However, 'HR' always had good annual and cumulative indexes, classified
by subject. If they have made the index entries into fully searchable
text with hyperlinks, it should be quite easy to find any article. Can
you confirm/correct these speculations please, John?
