    Just received my April QST. Paper seems wrinkly and kind of off white vs the usual glossy bright white. What’s up with this, going more “green” with a higher recycled paper content? It looks “pre-aged”!

    Took a look at mine it came today. Can't say it looks off-white did notice the pages are not smooth.

    Brings to mind the 16-ounce spring water bottles that have become so thin that when you grip the bottle to remove the cap water squirts out the top.

    Haven't looked at mine yet, as I grabbed it from the mailbox on the way to work yesterday, and it's still in the car. I'm waiting for the new issue of RadCom, personally.

    Same drivel and dearth of substantive content, regardless of paper it's printed on.

    As long as you can read the ads -- that's what matters.

    Unless one cares for QST's ads and SK listing, Radcom is better read.

    I haven't received mine yet....but if ALL magazines ditched super glossy bright paper it would NOT hurt my feelings. I hate trying to read magazines with glossy reflective pages. I like to lay them flat on a table or desk and it seems the light is always coming from the wrong angle. A duller, less reflective paper would be just fine by me.
