Default QST vs CQ

Hi,

In order to complete a long article about the history of ham radio I would
like to know :

- QST vs CQ, what magazine gathers today the large audience ? Some states it
is CQ.
- Who created CQ in 1945 ?
- Could someone provide me some electronic picture showing the first covers
of QST 1920 and CQ 1950 ?

Thanks in advance

It may be easier to contact the publisher for this. They may
have a reference collection of all covers.

I think the first qst was dec 1915. I had a repro somewhere in a dec
1955 qst. "40 year reissue" The first cover was fairly plain. I'd
have to double check, but seems to me I have some of the first issues
of cq in 1945...My oldest "real" qst's are back to 1935.
They went back quite a bit farther than that though. A friend of mine
had a bunch of 20's issues, but they were stolen out of a
mini-warehouse...At the time, they weren't that much of an issue,
being they also stole all his gear..."Including not one, but 3 henry
consoles, "one each for 2m,6m,and 70cm"

I believe that the founder of CQ was Wayne Green (W2NSD) who then went on to
found Byte magazine and
another ham magazine.

The ham magazine was 73. Would you believe that back in the 60's you
could get a life membership to 73 for $73? Would have been a good
deal until the magazine went belly up last year.

It was far better than that. The original price for life subscription to
73 was $37 US, chosen because it was a transposal of the two digits in
the magazine's name. Bill Turner who inhabits some of the newsgroups
and wrote many an article for the magazine, bought a life subscription
at that level, and says that yes indeed he did get it for life, with
the last issue being the last issue the magazine published.

I don't know how much the life subscription price varied over the years.
I do remember much being said about a $73 subscription in 1973.
