CQ June 2018

CQ. is now available in a digital edition as well as the traditional print edition. Find out more details about CQ.

From Mt. Kilimanjaro to Corsica to Yellowstone National Park, CQ's 2018 "Take it to the Field Special" takes us on a world tour of ham radio activities away from your home station. We've got a dozen different "field special" articles this year, including assembling (and then tearing down) a complete contesting station in Corsica, operating by battery from a backwoods ranger cabin in Yellowstone and operating FT8 from the slopes of Africa's highest mountain. We also visit Scotland and India, along with going pedestrian mobile in the Colorado Rockies. Articles that can be put to use anywhere include four knots every ham should know and a clever way to permanently mark the locations of temporary antennas at a location you visit repeatedly, such as a Field Day site.

We've also got the results of last year's CQ DX Marathon, a Q&A on using Logbook of the World to apply for CQ's Worked All Zones award, a look at wireless ham radio for the hearing-impaired and a warning about bogus batteries being sold on the internet.

All that and more awaits you in the June issue of CQ, coming soon to readers' mailboxes and in-boxes. For information on becoming a CQ subscriber - to either our print or digital edition click here!
