A stop by the PO box this morning resulted in the latest issue of QST.  Read 
this on the trip up to Rochester, NY this afternoon; good articles on new 
low-band receiving antennas, verticals & ground systems, and N6BT's (Force 
12) thoughts on how any antenna will work.

Front cover photo of the great-looking antenna farm at SK0UX with a caption 
of "July Antenna Issue".  Numerous antenna articles inside.
