    I haven't looked at all the articles available, nor do I have the ARRL's CD set of the QST archive.
    But the point IS well taken, that if the scanned images (whether .pdf or even jpeg or any other technology) are of low resolution as originally scanned, there's no technology (not even a magnifying glass) that will allow viewing or printing those images at a higher resolution. (So an old schematic with blurred component values will only provide blurred component values, no matter what.

    I'm not an ARRL member . . .

    I guess I have to ante up. Or buy the CD-ROMS.

    I'm only interested in some of the pre 1975 articles on some of the boatanchor equipment I have.

    Try your local public (or academic) libraries. Many have QST subscriptions. They normally don't loan the issues, but you can photocopy articles.

    Really a great addition to the members only section. Just found an article from 1971 that I remembered reading when I was a kid, Fine Business Claude.

    I've downloaded and printed several construction articles, some from the '20s and '30s, and all are perfectly useable. The text and schematics are readable, and the pictures are discernable enough to replicate the project.

    The WW2 years are especially interesting.
