Hi, Jay...
The ARRL's most important functions include insuring the continuation of our
spectrum allocations and privileges, international representation of the US
amateur's interests, and the continuing education of both the amateur
community and the public. To retain its strength and influence requires the
greatest membership numbers, and that means doing whatever is necessary to
attract and retain the newest entrants to the amateur community as ARRL
members. QST will no doubt continue to reflect the ARRL's farsighted support
of beginner articles and simple, basic construction projects. We, more
experienced hams can help by submitting lots of that type of article to QST
for consideration, and by directing the newbies to the real source of
amateur information and power by encouraging ARRL membership and active
participation. Besides, every issue of QST still contains a great deal of
useful and interesting information for the more established ham,
particularly in the specialized departments like Contest Corral, How's DX,
Public Service, and World Above 50 Mhz. If it's more advanced construction
and tech articles you want, there are lots of other ARRL publications....
how about that new Antenna Book with the design/analysis programs on CD-ROM?
Just one ham's opinion, but I think the ARRL and QST are on just the right
track right now.  Cebik and the other top antenna guys are fine, but,
hey....I wouldn't mind seeing an article in QST with your name on it, Jay!
73,  Jerry Keller K3MGT
