    I got an e-mail from ARRL offering this special gift:

    Of course, I'd really prefer the April 1904 issue.

    Scam alert -- No joke There was no QST in 1904 and no amateur radio. Marconi Wireless Telegraph Company of America was

    sending their first messages from Wellfleet, Massachusetts on point-to-point radio circuits. Welcome to the World-Wide InterTube.

    Be careful out there.

    I also received this email. Mousing over the click here does not show a destination.

    I wonder what else is included in the Holiday Gift Bundle?

    I believe it's what's known as a typo. I just thought it was funny.

    Interestingly, I noticed that the "click here" link on mine is also broken. It just opens up a browser tab with nothing in it. The image at the top of the e-mail goes here: https://www.arrl.org/arrl-donation-form

    I guess their proofreader has the day off today.

    You have a good heart, OM But there wasn't any 1914 QST, either

    I say again, Be careful out there

    I don't think there's anything to be careful about. The link DOES open a legitimate ARRL page and the link itself is legit. Someone just having a Manic Monday when they typed the blurb. ;)

    For those still all worried and stuff...the League posted a "Take 2" a little while ago. ;)
