    I find its a really good value. Priced good, and interesting. I wish I could say the same of other traditional magazines.

    FYI - I like printed materials too, but if interested in the topic, check out the forums on HF Underground.

    Note the links to other specialty sites over on the top right corner under News: their WIKI page is a great reference, especially the Signal Identification link. Also the Signal Identification Guide.

    If you liked the old Monitoring Times and Popular Communications, you'll be happy with this. I liked those two magazines OK, but not enough to subscribe to them (I'd pick Popcom up on the newsstand once in a while), and it's not any different with this one--FOR ME. :)

    OMG, I used to pass my printed issues of CQ onto my buddies all the time! What a rascal I was in my youth! :rolleyes:

    There's a little more to it than that. Print magazines were still doing OK when Popcom went out of business. The problem was their publisher couldn't figure out how to keep it going. They're having trouble doing that with their current magazine, too. ;)

    I looked at that issue a while back. Thus my comments above. Of course, it's quite possible they've improved a lot over the last couple of years. Maybe they should offer a more current sample of their work. ;)

    It's a PDF. They email a link to download the latest edition.

    Maybe but moving a single copy of a printed magazine from one person to another is one thing but this is more like photocopying it.

    How many copies did you pay for?

    It might be a minor thing to send someone one copy but ... I was pleased to discover that they don't have any copy protection / DRM type stuff. They're just plain PDFs so quite convenient to read on anything. It would be a pity for them to have to change that.
