“CQ VHF Magazine Launches Streamlined Website — Continuing its company-wide update of its magazine websites, CQ Communications, Inc. today announced the launch of a new and easier-to-navigate website for CQ VHF magazine. Like the recently updated sites for WorldRadio Online and Popular Communications, the new CQ VHF site features a cleaner look and a streamlined user interface to make it quicker and easier for visitors to find what they are looking for. The CQ VHF update coincides with posting of the highlights for the Summer 2010 issue.
Current issue highlights include sample pages in full-color layout, to give prospective readers the ability to see what the magazine itself looks like in print. Highlights of previous issues reaching back to 2006 are available on the website with easier access than in the past. One new feature is a ‘Current Events’ page, which provides readers with access to information on upcoming events and activities that is more up-to-date than possible with a quarterly publication.
The site also includes links to clubs, ham radio reference sites, contact information for editors and columnists, direct links to advertisers’ websites and to other CQ Communications publications. In addition, a link to the magazine’s Facebook page makes it simple for readers to provide feedback and connect with other hobbyists.
CQ VHF is a quarterly magazine devoted to ‘Ham Radio Above 50 MHz.’ First published in 1996, it combines articles designed for newcomers with historical and technical features best appreciated by more experienced VHF operators. It is edited by Joe Lynch, N6CL, who is also the long-time ‘VHF-Plus’ editor of parent magazine CQ Amateur Radio.
CQ VHF is published by CQ Communications, Inc., which also publishes CQ Amateur Radio, Popular Communications and WorldRadio Online magazines. The new CQ VHF website may be accessed at: <http://www.cq-vhf.com>.”
Don’t forget the Colorado 14er Event is next Sunday. We’ll be operating K0YB from the summit of Pikes Peak. Most likely, we’ll have HF, 6 Meters, 2 Meters, 70 cm and maybe some higher bands.
More information on the event here.
