CQ Highlights – July 2018

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

The July issue of CQ has a potpourri of articles about many different aspects of ham radio, starting with the results of the 2018 CQWW RTTY WPX Contest, the 6O6O DXpedition to Somalia and our latest inductees into the CQ Amateur Radio, Contesting and DXing Halls of Fame.

We've also got a mini-antenna special, including a stealth hexbeam you can mount in a tree, an antenna that's short on length but long on performance, and a guide to protecting your antenna and whatever's connected to it from power surges caused by nearby lightning (or an EMP, electromagnetic pulse).

We've got a project to help test the accuracy of your test equipment, a guide to the alphabet soup of digital communication modes, a look at summertime sporadic E and tropo ducting on VHF, plus visits to Ozarkcon and Downeast Microwave.

All that and more is coming up in the July issue of CQ magazine. For information on becoming a CQ subscriber - to either our print or digital edition - click here!
