I subscribe to both the print and digital editions of “QST”.  The issues complement each other nicely.   If I’m taking the day off and relaxing on the lanai (porch), I can bring up “QST” on my iPhone or iPad2 and enjoy a peaceful afternoon catching up on the latest equipment reviews, videos, and other features I can’t get with the print edition.  Just click on the link and see how much you’re missing with just the print edition.
