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.

: /\ 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
