Stopped by the PO box this morning after being out of town on business all
week and found the latest CQ along with the July Tech America sales catalog
Front cover photo of K1ZZ, Dave Sumner, at W1AW. The normal writeup on the
Contents page is the most I've seen in years! Can we expect this much space
on future cover photos?

Cushcraft has a full page ad for their new MA5B ("THE DIRECTOR") HF multiband
(10, 12, 15, 17, 20M) beam.
Alpha Delta has a 4 page ad on their HF 1/4 wave slopers.
AES has a full-page ad with their list of used and demo equipment for sale.
Re the Tech America catalog. Page 31 has Rohn 48 ft. self-supporting tower
for $399.95 (shipping cost extra). The text says it is the extra heavy-duty
tower with 18 sq. ft. antenna capacity. Page 31 is the "overstocks,
closeouts, clearance" page and indicates that there are limited quantities
and no backorders! This is around $200 less than other prices I have noted.
Their toll-free number is 800-877-0072 and they are located in Ft. Worth, TX,
with other stores in Denver, Phoenix, and Atlanta. Note - I have no
connection with Tech America or Rohn, nor am I mad at any other Rohn dealer.
Just though that this was a great deal for those who may be looking for a
tower in preparation for the upcoming contest season.
73 and good reading,
