CQ Highlights – September 2019

The September issue of CQ has a little something for everyone, starting with a tour of the Voice of America Museum of Broadcasting at VOA's former transmitter site in Ohio (a great side-trip if you go to Dayton). We also have the SSB results of the 2019 CQ World Wide WPX Contest, tips on using a radio's squelch to control various other pieces of shack equipment, a junkbox touch key, and a new feature in advance of CQ's 75th anniversary next year – reprinting classic articles from past issues. We start with a very advanced (for its time) look at "What You Can Do With Microwaves," from our very first issue in January, 1945.

Among our columns, Emergency Communications Editor W4ALT asks, "Do We Practice What We Preach?"; Kit-Building Editor K0NEB shows us a broadcast interference filter you can build; "Learning Curve" editor KO0Z introduces us to DMR (Digital Mobile Radio); "Ham Notebook" editor KH6WZ reports on what might be the last of the Maker Faires (also discussed in this month's editorial), and we introduce our new Awards Editor, Eddie DeYoung, AE7AA.

That's a brief look at what's coming up in the September issue of CQ magazine. For information on becoming a CQ subscriber - to either our print or digital edition – click here!
