My Op-Ed Piece to Finally Appear

It looks as though the Op-Ed piece I submitted more than a year ago, “No Ham Left Behind,” is finally going to appear in QST. Look for it in the July 2006 issue.

If you want a sneak preview, it’s here on the blog.


  1. Joe, KD8CEH says:

    It’s a good editorial, though I don’t think I would have used a comparison either to our very controversial president or to an educational program that turns out not to be working very well. If you can get them to leave that reference out (keeping “No ham left behind”) you might want to.

  2. Dan KB6NU says:

    I see what you’re saying, Joe, but I think that if people read the piece, they’ll see that what I’m proposing is a whole lot different than the president’s program. Besides, it’s already too late to change it.

  3. Dan KB6NU says:

    Well, I just got some bad news from Joel P. Kleinman, N1BKE, Managing Editor, QST. He writes :

    Hi Dan,

    Just a brief note to let you know that your Op-Ed piece will need to be held over. As were were putting the July issue together, we found we had more material than available pages. I will do my best to find a spot for it in the August issue, but I can’t promise at this point.

    I’m looking forward to having your article appear in QST.

    73, Joel
