[CQ-Contest] November CQ arrives

Another successful trip to the PO box this morning; found the latest
issue of CQ.  Interestingly, I stopped by the local newsstand to pick up
a new fishing magazine and noted that the Nov. CQ was already there.

Front cover photo is an aerial shot from 165 feet of the towers/antennas
and landscape around K1CA's home.  As usual, the fine (print) details on
the contents page provides very little information.  Does anyone have any
more details on this impressive site?

A thought-provoking editorial by K2EEK about the upcoming changes to the
US amateur radio service.

Interesting trivia:  Those tear-out Reader Service (Bingo) Cards and
Subscription Form/Envelopes that I always throw away are now considered
actual magazine pages!  The Reader Service Card is considered pages 25
and 26.

73 and good reading,
