If you have been into HAM Radio for a bit longer time, you might remember this; “73 Magazine”.
It was a United States-based amateur radio magazine that was published from 1960 to 2003.
The magazine was known for its deep technical articles and for the lengthy editorials in each issue by its publisher and founder; Wayne Green.
A friend of mine, who is also a radio amateur (PA8ZB) send this download link to me with all their issues in electronic format.
When I got the link, the first thing I wanted to do was to see what was popular in the month and year I was born. 🙂
It was funny to see what was popular then, and also what the prices were. You cannot find radios for that price anymore, but I guess inflation has a lot to do with that! 😉
You can find the “73 magazine” online archive if you follow the link below.
As you can see, it’s all legal and available on www.archive.org , a non-profit library of millions of free books, movies, software, music etc… That’s anyway a nice site to browse through when you feel nostalgic.
Enjoy going through history with all the (HAM) info you can find there! 🙂
