But in place of the results you get pages of listings of directors and pictures 
and pictures of hams with shack on the belt or porta setup in the parking lot 
of ......

It is so nice to look at old issues and see the good old days and history of 
growing up of today's champs.
Do we have to go and picket ARRL HQ or will they come to their senses and 
promote excellence, competition and growing segment of ham radio, rather than 
picturing shackonbelts? They don't buy magazines anyway, they already know how 
to push the PTT and say "come back".  :-)
