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.
