    These are all taken down , They are all copyrighted and posted without permission . So they are in fact illegal pirate versions .

    Has not been published since 2008/2009 but wants to keep the information from the newer (young) shortwave listeners,SHAME ON YOU. I guess the ownership of the copyright is more important than the spirit of shortwave listening it was born from. If it were my books,and could no longer profit from sales I would put it on the internet for free. Of course that’s just me!

    Yea… would have been nice to see that last issue.

    I have EVERY issue BUT that one and every one of them is signed by Ian McFarland….

    I would happily give all of those to a good home.

    While the link is still valid, the downloads were “disabled per request of publisher” before I could get a copy. I was too late to the party. If I’m not breaking any laws in here by asking that, does any of you got the PDF file for the latest issue? Although dated, it could be a nice read for a newbie.

    I was actually thinking about purchasing an old copy or two mostly for reading the old equipment reviews as well as the feature articles on various countries or stations. This makes it much easier!

    This is great news, also I remember hearing somewhere that SOME of the original
    editors, contributors, and publishers were going to reinvent the publication and start a new version solely online in the near future. I hope that this is being done to heighten interest in a new version.

    This is great news, thanks for posting this! I have managed to collect every single print edition and it will be nice to load these on the iPad and MacBook Pro. Every so often it’s nice to look-up an old review or page through some of the nostalgic features of yesteryear.
