Got my March at the end of March and got my April issue yesterday.  At least getting it now in the month of issue.

Have no fear, this will not last long. Pretty soon they will get later and later. It's a cycle that keeps repeating.

You've been promising they'd die and go under for the past three years...  yet, they are still there. Time to move on.  Living with intense hatred for a small magazine company will take a few years of your life at the rate you are going. Get a hobby. If losing a few meager bucks on a subscription is the worst fate you'll ever encounter, you are lucky.  Move on.  Others were burned far worst than you.

Got my May issue on Wednesday (16th).  Getting better.  We will see next month.  One thing, though.  The magazines look like they been thru the wringer.  Corners all bent up and rips.  Inside pages all folded up.  I get other magazines and none come this way.

They use them for toilet paper. Grin

Blame the post office that services whatever printer they are using these days.  The printers do not shred the magazines.

Received my July Radcom yesterday. It is always on-time. They showed that more than 80 US amateurs joined the RSGB since the last issue and will now receive Radcom. Radcom is an excellent replacement for the perpetually late or missing CQ. If you really want a different perspective, you definitely get that with Radcom.

I'm also amazed they are able to keep going.

Just returned from a spending a week at Myrtle Beach SC. Figured I would find CQ on one of the newsstands. Checked 2 Books-A-Million stores in the malls and the Barnes & Noble store - no CQ magazine. Did find Nuts and Volts which is now published 6 times per year. I purchased the May/June issue and think it is a pretty good magazine, more technical than QST and therefore more interesting.

I don't have any problem with CQ Communications. They refunded all my money plus interest even though it took them a year or two. I'm curious if they still sell to newsstand suppliers. It's painfully obvious CQ has victimized themselves with bad business practices. It seemed odd not to find CQ on these big magazine racks that take up an entire wall in the 2 large size BAM! mall stores.

I got a solicitation for a CQ subscription in the mail today.  I have always loved that magazine.  I am soooo tempted!  Yup.  I’m gonna subscribe.  I spend more money than an annual subscription costs on going out to dinner.  I want them to succeed.  I want an option to QST.  Late?  Hey, I’m 75 years old.  Everything is late...HiHi.

The comedy just continues. You could walk away from eHam for awhile and come back months later and there are still
guys bitching about CQ. It's great fun to read about ya'all wasting your money on that rag.

I still get the digital version on time.  I am from the old school and prefer paper but that does not seem to work with this outfit.

I get the CQ digital edition.  I was able to download the August issue but am unable to read it.  Is this just me or is it another nail in the CQ coffin?
