       As some of you might have heard, the Expanded Test Result
Reports that supplement QST Product Reviews of HF transceivers 
have had to be mostly eliminated.  Basically, the ARRL Lab's 
plate is very full of critical tasks, and that includes my 

Now, I'm probably the biggest proponent of expanded test result 
reports for transceivers featured in QST's Product Review 
column.  As the ARRL's Test Engineer, I can't help but be 
interested in the nitty-gritty of a rig's performance.  As 
such I would like to continue doing the reports as often as 
in the past, and I need some feedback from readers in order 
to make that happen.  

It seems to me that what most folks are interested in is 
perhaps a small subset of the typical 30+ pages of data that 
we have published in past reports.  For example, I've often 
wondered how many people really want to know the precise 
variation in transmitter output power (both maximum and 
minimum) on every single band.  In contrast, the swept 
receiver dynamic range graphs are probably among the most 
popular features.

Please take a moment to look over the table of contents 
of reports you have read and rate each test on a 1-5 scale 
(5 being highest), then directly email me with your 
preferences (I won't be discussing this on the lists, so 
don't expect a reply to postings).
