The July issue of CQ highlights our hobby's incredible variety, with articles ranging from antenna projects (one a hardware-store special and the other requiring a higher level of skill and patience!) and radio history ("Clandestine Radios of World War II") to our hobby's future ("Reaching for the Stars at the Dayton Youth Forum").

We've also got a photo essay from the Dayton Hamvention® - and here on our website, we've got a brief look at many of the new products introduced at this year's "big show."

We’ve also got this year's inductees to the CQ Amateur Radio, Contest and DX Halls of Fame and the rules for this fall's CQ World Wide RTTY DX Contest. [NOTE: RTTY WPX Contest results, scheduled for this issue, have been delayed due to ongoing issues with scoring software. We apologize for the delay.]
Plus… we have a profile of an excellent "Elmer" (a ham radio mentor), a semi-tongue-in-cheek guide to making contacts more interesting, and two different approaches to showing off ham radio in public.

There's more, of course, from Chinese FM rigs to moonbounce from the Falklands, all blended together to demonstrate the breadth of the radio hobby. Finally, we're continuing to celebrate CQ's 70th anniversary by seeking your nominations for "The CQ 70," a compilation of the most influential people in our hobby today. Details are in the July issue and here on our website (see links below).

That's a brief look at what's 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!
