I am not going to rave about RadCom for RSGB, but did want to mention that my November issue arrived yesterday. Amazing that they can get a magazine to me from overseas on-time, but CQ cannot perform simple domestic delivery. QST, RadCom and several QRP publications are really all I need. If CQ went away tomorrow, who would really notice? Last time I saw any figures I think they only have ~20,000 subscribers. That figure probably continues to go down since I doubt many renew when they don't receive a magazine. Heck, still waiting for the last 1 + year of CQ that they screwed me out of which is why I will never buy another product or magazine from that company. There are too many sources of information on the hobby available on the Internet today so really all we need are the publications from the amateur related organizations in each country. Ham Radio is not a political organization so we really don't need the so-called independent voice. Independent voice for what? Arguing over which frequency band is better or which digital mode is better? BTW, that independent voice shot itself in the foot a while back when it promoted Fusion over D-Star. I think that is when Icom pulled its ads. Sometimes that independent voice can actually be a foot in the mouth.
