Another good day at the PO box; the latest CQ arrived.

Front cover photo of the W1AF, Harvard Wireless Club shack in action. 
And, amazingly,
there is a related feature article inside!

This months Zero Bias - Editorial includes tributes to Alan Dorhoffer,
K2EEK, SK.  Too
bad they could not have included him on the front cover, since there is a
lot of material
devoted to him inside.
