I am afraid the days of print are slowly coming to an end ! I remember back in my CB then SWL days..one of the few local stores that carried CQ Magazine was my 'Monthly Trek' as a kid on my bike, to see if the 'New Issue' was in ! I occasionally bought others, Popular Elec, Communications, etc..but 'CQ' was what I was always looking for ! I guess if I look back the 30+ years now..those 'colorful Rig Adds, DXpedition stories, etc.. I 'Owe it to CQ Mag for making me pursue the Hobby' ! Have not read one in years..but still remember those 'TS-820's, IC-751's, etc..that would make me 'drool' while listening to 'the guys' on my Radio Shack DX-160 ! Always figured 'Some Day' ! Well that day came in Feb. 84'..was a 'Great Magazine'..sorry to see her a SK !

As far as contests go - you do not need a magazine to run or sponsor contests.

No but I will miss the hard copy.  I have been getting both for some
time but always like having something in my hand too.
