re:  HR & 73 Mag
re: HR's lack of a technical editor...
Might have been more productive in the long run. The 
ARRL does have a Technical Editor and look what 
happened in your case, Rich... 
73 Mag is alive and about the same.  They had a 
booth at Dayton where $20 brought a year subscription 
to the door, so I went for it and have received two 
issues since Dayton. 
73 was often a rehash of the same 25 simple 
projects... how many times can one build a J-Pole 
for 2 meters.   Wayne is still writing 5 page intros 
about getting young people interested in ham 
They do mention a serious desire and solicit for 
technical articles, throwing out the cash "bone" to 
entice authors... but it's really not much money. 
I think authors often end up working for less than 
California min wage (about $6 an hour) when it 
all comes out.

>HR was the best thing going and still holds it own 

: /\  The problem with writing post-Jim Fisk articles for HR was that
: had no technical editor.  Thus, writers had deal with an editor that
: hardly an electronics maven
