    Actually, I feel they are committing fraud. The are taking money in exchange for a product they are not providing. And across state lines, that would constitute a federal crime, wouldn't it? Mail fraud?

    Well, they're not. At least concerning print issues. Yet they act as if they are, and are still stealing money from anyone dumb enough to send it to them.

    Times can change all they want but if Nxtbook and these other pukey online readers are the best they format for digital editions no money will be leaving my hands.

    Crashed my FIrefox. Locked it up when I tried to view an issue.

    Good luck getting that. I cancelled a three year subscription with about 1.5 years remaining and never got a refund. That was about 2 or 3 years ago. I don't and never will trust them again.

    Thirty years ago, I used to buy CQ regularly on the newsstand. And, no, it wasn't very good then, either. Lots of contesting stuff, fluff, and error-filled technical/construction articles. I liked Pop Com better than CQ, and World Radio a whole lot better. Alas, the slow death of shortwave broadcasting killed Pop Com, and CQ bought out World Radio--apparently just to kill it.

    I guess it was a year or two that I picked up my last issue of CQ off the Barnes and Noble magazine rack--just before they disappeared from bookstores. I was curious to see if anything had changed. It hadn't.

    Bingo. Sort of, anyway. The reason W2NSD left in the first place, apparently, was CQ's scurrilous business practices. ;)
