When I was a much younger ham back in the 1970s, one of my favorite Amateur Radio magazines was “Ham Radio Horizons.”  I liked the format, the easily understood writing style, and the simple construction articles that graced its pages.  Although the magazine has ceased publication, its legacy is preserved in various formats, including a complete CD set published by CQ Publications.

According to Albert Verdecia (KA4ANA), the non-profit Internet Archive is putting some of these issues online.

Here’s the text of Albert’s article:

“Would you like to travel back in time to the late 1970’s and be able to see and read all 36 complete issues of Ham Radio Horizons for FREE??? Well thanks to the fine folks at The Internet Archive you can…never heard of them? Well here is their info:
