CQ Highlights – August 2019

The August issue of CQ starts out with a radio-equipped trip to the Galapagos Islands – three trips, actually, with a 36-year gap between the first two. We've got the results of the 2019 CQWW 160-Meter Contest and a summary of the rules for this fall's CQ World Wide DX Contest (SSB October 26-27; CW November 23-24 – NOT Thanksgiving Weekend this year!). Carole Perry, WB2MGP, offers highlights of the 32nd annual Dayton Youth Forum; WB9YBM has tips on "Bringing New Life to Old Radios" and WD8OYG provides a project article on improving repeater audio quality. We've also got three antenna-related articles: a rain-gutter antenna, a tiltable mast for the side of your house, and a look in our Antennas column at verticals and radials.

Among our other columns, we have a guide to hurricane nets, a look at new kits introduced at Dayton, hamming from an RV, "the incomparable comparator," and more. That's a brief look at what's coming up in the August issue of CQ magazine, today's "most-readable" ham magazine with articles of interest from cover to cover.
