I thought this was about content in QST, so why did they only survey the
"domestic (USA) members"?  Don't the "non-domestic" members receive QST,and
are they not entitled to be polled as to there interests in the magazine
that they pay for as well as us "domestic" members?  Or maybe they might
skew the results to include such foreign things as contesting and DX ing?
