CQ Magazine has announced that it will publish a combined January/February 2015 issue and cease publication of its CQ Plus digital supplement as of the March 2015 issue. Publisher Dick Ross, K2MGA, said that both moves are intended to help restore the magazine’s normal schedule for its print edition and to strengthen its foundations moving forward as it enters its 8th decade of publication.
“These decisions were not made lightly,” Ross added, “but in recognition of the realities of the publishing industry. It’s a tough time to be in the magazine business, and we appreciate the patience and loyalty of both our readers and our advertisers.”
CQ announced last February that it was incorporating content from the magazine’s three sister publications — Popular Communications, CQ VHF andWorldRadio Online —into CQ Plus. The publisher also phased out the print editions of Popular Communications and CQ VHF and said WorldRadio Onlinewould no longer exist as a separate online publication.
