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. In addition to pages of feature articles and columns, ARRL members have enjoyed poring over the advertisements found in each issue, mesmerized by the latest and greatest station equipment.
A History of QST — Volume 2: Advertising is a nostalgic look back at Amateur Radio technology, activities and interests over the last century. Through a collection of QST pages and advertising, Joe Veras, K9OCO, traces the history of receivers, transmitters, antennas and other station gear from 1915 to today. Notable highlights of the Amateur Radio Service are included for each decade, along with advertising representative of the era. As you turn the pages, technology changes, bands are added and modes of operation come and go. You are sure to see many familiar names—manufacturers who are still innovating and contributing to the state-of-the-art, along with ones who gradually faded into history and others who barely got off the ground. It is an intriguing journey of Amateur Radio’s rich and varied history—told through the creative marketing, advertising and photography of yesteryear.
