That's a good point, I wonder if construction article submissions are down?
I know several hams have said (talk is cheap afterall) they'd like to send
in a construction article but QST requires a PCBoard layout for build-it
articles. I don't know if this is true. I think this disuades Manhattan
guru's from submitting.

Brice's Tiny Tornado may just be the spark that renews interest in QRPp, it
has a board, it has an interesting history, and I think it would be a fun
construction article for QST. Maybe he'll write this up??

I don't know if Ed is privvy to the amount of construction submission sent
to QST. I'd even be interested in a book of "Articles we got but didn't
print" put out by the league.
