Word gets out that you don't pay your authors, therefore you having trouble getting issues to print....its a domino effect. I agree....the magazine is gone within a year.

I got paid for my field day article back in Nov of 2010 and know Dick Ross personally. He is doing his best to stay in business and hams should support him, after all we're still in a slow economy.

Supporting CQ both with advertising dollars like we do with ham radio deluxe, and subscriptions, will help CQ continue to be the alternate to QST!

In other words, give CQ a second chance, please.

I agree with W4PC.  It would be nice to have CQ stick around.  There is a blurb in the new issue to the effect that they are cleaning up their act.  They will extend all subscriptions to make up for the missed issues.

I, for one, am willing to give them the benefit of the doubt at present.

If they start delivering on their promises, people probably will.  It's been at least twice now that they've said that their subscribers will again receive their regular deliveries.... starting with the next issue.  As it seems right now, this is the second time they're falling short.

Add to that their 'appointments' of two staff persons and the fanfare that those regular business appointments have gotten....  There was no need for the extra spending to make those announcements where supposedly they are having a hard time making ends meet.

Kinda reminds you of another company who should remain nameless, but shall always remain Radio Shack--who continually spends the money for the bullets--to shoot themselves in the foot!

Well, I did get the CQ March/April combined issue yesterday (I've had the May QST for over a week).  The CQ March/April combined issue had the same number of pages as the December (single) issue - which came in January.  Never got the January issue, and the February issue was digital only.  My subscription is up at the end of the summer.  I'll renew if they can get it together by then.  We'll see.

I was subscribed to Pop Communications for years and years.  Now it is gone  itself and included in CQ.  I just received the Mar/April CQ and remember why I dropped CQ subscription years ago.  I have  no idea when the Pop Com subscription expires(Nothing on the mailing label) but I will not renew.

Well I was dumb enough to subscribe in January 2014 and have not received anything except an email to tell me my digital copy was reay. I emailed asking for my money back and they have not replied at all. I guess I will just chalk this one up! Huh Huh

If CQ is having problems they should keep subscribers in the loop.  I for one would like to see them stay around.  However, I am not planning on renewing my subscription because they don't care.  They have done nothing but lie about problems.  I don't need that.

Looks like "Electric Radio" is going to be the only Real ham radio magazine left to be published in the U.S..

I'm happy for you, in that you got paid.

 I am a professional writer, and I write to pay my bills.  My wife's medications cost over 27 thousand a year... and insurance certainly doesn't cover it all. Even after meeting the donut hole leaves us with a major financial burden.  When I'm not reimbursed for my work, even after being promised numerous times that a check is in the mail, unfortunately causes me a lot personal pain. I've pretty much lost my faith in dealing with a few publications because of this.  Like many, I'm retired and on a fixed income.  My talent in this hobby has always been writing and editing. It has served me well, at least until recently.  Now, I've pretty much lost my faith in dealing with a few publications because of how I've been treated. Asking someone to donate time and skills is one thing, PROMISING payment for work and reneging is another thing. I would have been happy to do some free work, but being held under a whip to produce a monthly column is something different.

BTW, wasn't HRD one time free for download? I think HRD should remain free! After we are hams, and it is the good of the
hobby, right? Or is your time worth more than mine?  Just curious, since you have elected to avoid my PMs.

 Pete
