I have all issues, even in binders, back to #1 in 1945.  My last one is Oct 2013.  If anyone gets Nov and Dec and don't plan to keep, I would like to buy so can finish out full year 2013 in my collection.

You're welcome to my Nov issue.  I will put your name on it, but won't send it for a while.
If a Dec issue eventually shows up, after I finish it, I will send both of them together. HNY

No December CQ here as of today's mail. Granted, I gave up and cancelled on Dec. 30, but assuming that CQ was telling the truth about the issue mailing in the first half of December, it should have arrived anyway.

I suspect CQ will be healthy for the next several years. It was obvious that the advertising and subs for Pop'Comm and CQ VHF weren't paying their way.  I'm sure they did their best to keep the other two mags in print, but in the end economics won out. Taking the less than profitable mags to digital was probably a wise, but sad, move. If they failed, it was because they didn't have enough subscribers, nor enough advertisements from suppliers/manufacturers. Don't complain about ads in a magazine. They make them profitable. 50% ads to articles is a good ratio. Very few mags can do it.

I just received my December issue today. Good to see it finally. I did notice the front cover picture, it appears Santa is having to deal with cutbacks also. I count just four reindeer pulling the sleigh. It looks like Rudolph is also part of the layoffs, he's not leading the way this year. Everyone's taking a hit.  Undecided

Amateur Radio NewslineT Report 1904 - February 7, 2014

LINK: http://www.arnewsline.org/storage/scripts/nsln1904.txt

THAT FINAL ITEM:  DISPELLING THE RUMORS ABOUT CQ MAGAZINE

And finally this week, word that the print edition of CQ
Magazine is alive well and catching up on its paper
publication after a bout with distribution problems.  This
according to CQ editor Rich Moseson, W2VU, in a recent
interview with Hap Holly, KC9RP, of the Radio Amateur
Information Network.  W2VU says that the folks at CQ are
hard at work to get things back to normal:

W2VU: "We've has over the past few months some significant
problems with distribution of our print issues.  We
apologize to all of our readers and are hoping that a lot of
these changes we are making can help get us back on
schedule.  We really, really appreciate everyone's patience
with us and hope that you will continue to be patient as we
work our way back to a normal schedule on our print issue."

And what about the rumor that CQ is abandoning print in
favor of digital only distribution?  Moseson says that's not
going to happen with CQ:

W2VU: "We have no intention of abandoning print, but if you
look around the magazine marketplace today, virtually every
magazine that's out there has a digital edition as well as a
print edition.  It's just where the industry is going and
what readers expect.  They expect to have a choice between a
digital and a print edition of a magazine."

What about CQ's other magazines?  W2VU says that they will
become a part of the expanded version of CQ found only on
the web:

W2VU:  "Beginning with the February issue of CQ we are
incorporating elements of Popular Communications, CQ VHF and
Worldradio Online into an expanded digital edition which we
are calling CQ Plus.  Its going to be another 50 pages long
every month.  Those other magazines are no longer going to
be published independently so their content is going to be
merged into this expanded digital edition of CQ."

From today's CQ Newsroom email: "We are continuing to experience delays with print distribution. January and February issues should be on their way soon. We appreciate your patience."
