QST, the Ham Radio magazine from the A.R.R.L.
QST was and is the foremost magazine for the ham radio fans of the US. First published in 1915 by the American Radio Relay League (A.R.R.L.); over a hundred years later, it's still being published today. Imagine the transitions from spark gap to glowing tubes to transistors to computerized communications shacks: It's all in this magazine.
These issues are hard to find, and rarely sold; our cover image files for the early years are not the best. But enjoy them for what they are. All the issues of QST from the first to a recent one are available online for A.R.R.L. members at their website, ARRL.org. They have also sold a CD-ROM of these issues, but in black-and-white only. NOTE: Amateur radio was shut down during World War One, and QST suspended publication during that time; there were no issues published for 1917-10 through 1919-05.
Michael Ward W6INA, originator of this website, is a life member of the A.R.R.L., and proud to be one.
