  Amateur Radio Magazine from the American Radio Relay League - Early Issues

"QST", in amateur radio shorthand, means "Calling all Stations"
It's also the name of the magazine of the American Radio Relay League, the dominant and influential association of hams in the US.
The magazine was first published in December 1915.Publication of QST was temporarily suspended after the September 1917 issue. In April 1917, the United States government, following its entrance into World War I, banned all amateur radio activities, and a large percentage of the magazine's subscribers had entered military service. The ban on amateur radio was lifted after the conclusion of the war. QST returned in May 1919
Only Earliest Issues Posted
Because of the immense historical value in their contents and the valuable contributions made to electronics and radio technology by hams, we have posted a selection of only the earliest QST magazines.
The content in these journals reaches well beyond the specific scope of amateur radio operations and is an important part of the broader history of early radio.
Please do not ask us to present any "newer" issues as the ARRL site can provide access to those.
