Re: Construction Articles Not Necessarily Dwindling

I tend to disagree about other publications siphoning off articles. The
smaller magazines, like QRPp or QQ are specialist magazines with
circulation of less thin a couple of thousand. Also they don't pay for
articles they accept and publish.

Authors who continuously submit to them are not receiving the coverage
they might receive with QST or other large circulation magazine! No
author will ever get rich writing for a hobby magazine unless he has two
or three articles published each month! But he will recover the cost of
parts and some of his troubles. His reputation will also grow.

The old adage of "you get what you pay for" applies here. IF you write
for a small hobby magazine you may be known by 2000 of your closest
friends but your resume will not grow much. If you write for QST or CQ
or even World Radio your reputation will grow further and faster!
