A stop by the PO box this morning was a real treat.  After having been out of 
town on business last week, and staying home Friday to get ready for the 
weekend's CQWW SSB, there was a large backlog of mail.  First there was the 
latest CQ, CQ Contest, and QEX, and second, two fishing magazines.  So, what 
is in the latest mags…
