I am afraid the days of print are slowly coming to an end ! I remember 
back in my CB then SWL days..one of the few local stores that carried CQ 
Magazine was my 'Monthly Trek' as a kid on my bike, to see if the 'New 
Issue' was in ! I occasionally bought others, Popular Elec, 
Communications, etc..but 'CQ' was what I was always looking for !  I 
guess if I look back the 30+ years now..those 'colorful Rig Adds, 
DXpedition stories, etc.. I 'Owe it to CQ Mag for making me pursue the 
Hobby' !  Have not read one in years..but still remember those 
'TS-820's, IC-751's, etc..that would make me 'drool' while listening to 
'the guys' on my Radio Shack DX-160 ! Always figured 'Some Day' ! Well 
that day came in Feb. 84'..was a 'Great Magazine'..sorry to see her a SK !
