These articles are scanned and OCRed from old editions of the ARRL's QST magazine. Here is a list of the QST articles I have already posted. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged.

Phil Glidersleeve 'Gil' Book from ARRL - RF CafeTake a break from the Hump Day doldrums and enjoy a few vintage Ham-themed comics. Artist Phil Glidersleeve (aka 'Gil'), W1CJD, crated hundreds - if not thousands - of such comics for QST and other technical magazines during his multi-decade career. Most of these particular comics accompanied monthly columns and have a theme related to something within the text. However, I don't want to bore you with reading since it is not necessary to enjoy the humor.
