"Have fun trying to figure out how search works."

I don't know why anybody would use archive.org  (The Internet Wayback
Machine") for anything.

The U.S. National Archives, at archives.gov, isn't any better.

Since I bought a new Win 10 machine a couple years ago I've been using
Microsoft's built-in "Bing" search engine and I like it. Type "YASME" into
Bing and the very first result is MY BOOK at the YASME Foundation web site.
Haha I win.

Years ago I had a GF with a PhD in anthropology who had reinvented herself
as a database guru. She worked at the Yale School of Management. Her mind
worked in mysterious ways.

archive.org is also a wonderful resource.. Callbooks, 73 Magazine, Ham
Radio Magazine, QST, etc..

Have fun trying to figure out how search works - just gotta keep playing
with it

>* Kevin: Thank you! I have worldradiohistory.com <http://worldradiohistory.com> bookmarked and have used*
>* it.*
>* In fact, in one very important way it's much better than the ARRL archives;*
>* worldradiohistory has complete issues, every page, cover-to-cover. You can*
>* load and then read an entire issue like that. And the WRH page scans are a*
>* lot cleaner in most cases. Thanks for reminding me of this resource.*
>* The ARRL QST archives do provide a search function that can work if you*
>* have a fair idea of what you are looking for (e.g. a word or words that*
>* appear in the article title).*
>* CQ magazine archives are available, too, for a subscription, at CQ Magazine*
>* Archives (hamcall.net <http://hamcall.net>) <https://hamcall.net/cq <https://hamcall.net/cq>>. A working historian would*
>* certainly need them. For contesters, the CQ WW DX contest articles are*
>* available at yet another web site, CQ Magazine Archives (hamcall.net <http://hamcall.net>)*
>* <https://hamcall.net/cq <https://hamcall.net/cq>> .*
>* hamcall.net <http://hamcall.net> has 73 magazine archives, too, although it is limited. Whew,*
>* an*
>* embarrassment of riches.*
>* A lot of people worked to make all these resources available and they*
>* deserve a big tip of the hat. When I researched a book in 2001/2002 NONE of*
>* these resources existed. Turns out that the internet is useful for more*
>* than cute cat photos after all.*
