Just saw a Facebook posting from the ARRL asking for article submissions for QST. I recall I did that a few years ago. Had what I thought would be an interesting topic. Sat down, spent 10-15 hours writing it, and submitted it. After a few weeks, I received a form letter informing me that my article was not chosen. Honestly, I am not sure why anyone would want to write an article after that? I don't have a lot of free time and would rather spend it on something where the product of my work is noticed. I can write an article and publish it here on QRZ forums and it'll get published here. I'm bound to get at least or two comments and probably a lot more will eventually see the article through Google searches. This isn't a complaint about QST or the ARRl or anything like that...just shows me that in this day and age, I really expect my time to be spend doing something productive. Spending 1/3 of a workweek on something that gets promptly deleted just doesn't make sense to me.
