Hi,

A note to say that announcements of eclipse and other scheduled events
probably should go into QST a month earlier.  I just got the December
QST 2 days ago (Dec. 6), and know some have not yet received it.  I see
it has the notice for the Dec. 4 eclipse, already passed.

Electronic version was out much earlier. ARRL is claiming "supply
chain" issues ... which may well be true.

For those that don't know, League members can get all 4 ARRL
periodicals electronically - QST, QEX, National Contest Journal, On
The Air. You can opt for paper versions of QST *or* OTA or you can
opt-out of paper entirely. The e-versions are not PDF (or if they
are, I just don't know how to get them out of the app) but they do
have links in them as if it's 2022 or something. And they are
figuring out that they can put more content in there, like proper
Field Day results instead of just the aggregated COVID Club scores.

I will avoid speculating as to whether QST+QEX+NCJ+OTA equals what was
once found in QST alone ...

ARRL has warts, to be sure, but if you plan to be in this hobby in 5
years, you need to be a member. Discount memberships for under-21
hams.

And don't forget to look for yet another picture of Nathaniel!

Yes, nice Field Day photo of W2NAF and first harmonic Anthony, perhaps a budding ham, HamSCI member, engineer and/or physicist in the making!

I now refuse any subscription that will only kill a tree. I have no room for magazines. I have lots of digital storage and they come on time or early every month.
