April CQ and Pop'Comm Highlights Posted Online

While you're waiting for your April issue of CQ or Popular Communications to arrive in your mailbox, enjoy a preview of each issue on their respective websites, <http://www.cq-amateur-radio.com> and <http://www.popular-communications.com>.

CQs April highlights include a rundown of every article in the issue, as well as a link to a YouTube video demonstrating how to program the Kenwood TH-D72A handheld for APRS use. The issue includes a "First Look" at this new APRS-ready HT, as well as a short essay by APRS developer Bob Bruninga, WB4APR, on the many potential uses for the system beyond location tracking. We also have the full results of the 2010 CQ WPX CW Contest on the website, along with the expanded results for both the CW and SSB portions of the contest.

The April issue of Pop 'Comm highlights all the great new goodies on display at the Consumer Electronics Show, plus an in-depth look at WINRADIO's new G31DDC Excalibur software-defined receiver. Something you'll find on the website - but not in the magazine - is a direct link to a demo of this new no-dials radio.

Both magazines should be in subscribers' mailboxes and on newsstands by the first week in April.
