We depend on our readers to supply material for Electric Radio. Our reader’s interest is in articles that pertain to vintage amateur or shortwave equipment, with an emphasis on traditional AM, but articles on CW and SSB are also needed. Photos of hams in their radio shacks are always appreciated. We invite those interested in writing for Electric Radio to write, call, or E-Mail the editor. Electric Radio wishes to thank all of our regular contributors for their fine work.

The December 2020/January 2021 issue #379 was mailed on Tuesday, January 5th. Due to problems with the United States Postal Service, DO NOT expect timely delivery as in years past…this is totally out of our control once the monthly issues are turned over to USPS.

   Please be aware of extended delivery times per the USPS web site: “Except for priority express, USPS products and packages may require more time to be delivered due to limited transportation availability as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 impacts.”
We have found delivery times to be totally unpredictable. In normal times, it used to be about 3-4 days for 1st class delivery and up to 3 weeks for Periodicals-class delivery.
