As seen in QST
For nearly a century, ARRL's membership journal, QST, has advanced the art and science of Amateur Radio by delivering timely, engaging and valuable information to ham radio operators. Each month, ARRL members enjoy pages of features and columns full of the latest equipment reviews, technical tips, projects, and news.
A History of QST — Volume 1: Amateur Radio Technology captures important technical contributions, adaptations, and syntheses of technology throughout Amateur Radio's first century. Through a collection of QST pages and other ARRL publications, a commentary of multiple authors reviewed the Amateur Radio literature, selecting imperative advances in the state of the art and articles that illustrate them. Each is preceded by a short introduction explaining the article's significance and relevance. As you turn the pages, you'll uncover amateur inventions and their support of science through individual efforts and cooperation across the entire Amateur Radio community. The journey begins in the era of spark, continuing through the present and into our second century, touching upon signals, antennas, propagation, modes, circuitry, satellites, and more. A bibliography of additional and supporting references is provided for further exploration.
