    Yep, a very experienced ham such as the OP is much less likely to find a lot of fascinating articles in the general magazine on the topic.

    But that’s why there is now FREE (with membership) digital copies of QRX, NCJ, etc. I don’t know what else one could ask of a organization which has an extreme diversity of interest among its members.

    Maybe some would be happy if all of those publications were concatenated together and labeled as “QST”? No, then they would probably complain that it’s too thick, or too technical, or too contesty, or whatever.

    It's not just QST. All magazines are going the way of the Dodo. I spent 44 years in the concert sound business. I still subscribe to several music industry periodicals including Mix, Pro Sound News, etc. They all used to be 1/2" thick. Now, they are mere pamphlets. And most of their articles don't interest me anymore. Of course, the music industry is in the ditch due to Covid.

    When magazines don't pay their contributing writers you hear a whooshing vacuum sound. Not saying that's the case with QST but it certainly is with one other (failing) ham publication.

    QST needs to be renamed QRT... :( and yes, I'm a member and a subscriber.

    I know I could google it, but does anybody know If I could elect to get QEX rather than QST? My recollection is that the last time I renewed my membership my only choices were QST or the new Newbie Mag...

    My take on it. Ham radio has not changed much in the 105 year history of QST. After 105 years there is not much left to cover that has not already been beat to death.

    Yeah, we're still subjects of King Spark and wishing we could find a good condenser for a good price. ;)
