Oh man, I am sorry to hear of Wayne's passing. Sad   He was a colorful and productive member of the ham community.  I enjoyed reading his "73 Magazine" back in the early 1970's,  before I was a ham or while I was a Novice, in my teens. 

RIP Wayne.  They broke the mold after they made you.

73,

Ohh just like the hot air on AM radio these days called Limbaugh....(how many times I have caught him in lies)

Care to list some of those for us? 

In context, with actual facts? 


really???  http://mediamatters.org/research/2013/01/07/25-examples-that-prove-rush-limbaugh-is-a-low-i/192085

Rush Limbaugh has gotten filthy rich through disinformation and entertaining hot air.  Instead of encouraging respect for political opponents and encouraging real debate, he spreads hate and demonization of 'libtards' and throws dirt on respectable conservative perspectives through his bombastic nonsense.

however, he does laugh all the way to the bank.  no doubt it was men like him that had Mark Twain quip that a lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is still putting its boots on.

Does this 2 party political manure have anything to do with Wayne Greene?  Aaah, I didn't think so.

One ham who has known Wayne for years and who wrote articles for 73, has cautioned people not to confuse Wayne's efforts to sell magazines with his real personal beliefs!

i think the correlation regarded Rush Limbaugh's willingness to use faulty arguments to make (a great deal of) money  Huh

although obviously Wayne Green isn't in that league...

The mold was broken just BEFORE Wayne was born... Grin

QST was better back then, yes. But no ham magazine published in the USA were better than Ham Radio before Jim Fisk, W1HR, died.
Amen.  In high school, I learned more about (then new) logic and linear ICs -- such as 7400 series -- reading Ham Radio, than was available in text books (printing and usage trailed developments 3 to 5 years).  QST started a similar set of educational articles later.

Ziff-Davis pivoted in mid-1970s changing focus from Popular Electronics to focus on new hobby computers (PCWeek and Apple magazines were born).  BTW, Wayne did same with founding of Byte magazine in mid-1970s.

Wayne had chance to be multi-millionaire, but his wife, Virginia grabbed company in late 1975.
She sold it to McGraw Hill in 1979.  Tidy profit for 4 years of work.

Wayne always reminded me of Hugo Gernsback.  Hugo was very instrumental in popularizing radio even during WW1 when things were tough.  Take a look at http://www.americanradiohistory.com/index.htm.  Some really early radio publications, many by Gernsback.  Amazing what we didn't know only 90 years ago.  Spark was still king.  Audion (triode tube) radios were the latest technology.  And the longer the wavelength the longer the distance (or so they thought back then).

I miss Wayne.  He was entertaining.

I agree about Ham Radio magazine. The only bad thing about it was (and still is) the number of errors in the indexes. But I have all the issues on CD. QEX has sort of taken that slot, but doesn't have the number of articles in each issue that HR did.

No, but then again, I never heard him say he was drug addict either.

I can see we have some spoiled apathetic brats on the forum. If people are well informed, they will be able to make wise decicions. At least Wayne doesn't sit still, and rants or not, He's using his brain.

I would be happy to know if Wayne is still alive.  I was a subscriber to 73 Mag back in the 60s and 70s, and whilst it was not a very high tech mag, the practical side of the articles was of inestimable benefit.  I had a Uni Degree in electronics, so the theory was just needing the practical flavour to get on-air results.   Back in those days, there was much more homebrewing done, so the mag copies were well thumbed.  You needed to be a selective reader if you did not want to follow his ranting, and that was just easy to do.
Long live NSD.
