QST archives are available
free to members
of the ARRL.
For non-members, the archives are available in the form of
QST View CD-ROMs. The ARRL has stopped restocking the
CD-ROMs and very few sets are still in stock. The complete
set (1915-1999) is still available from the
original publisher of the CD-ROMs. If you don't
already own the CD-ROMs, the least expensive way to read
the archives is to get an ARRL membership.
The software readers for the QST View CD-ROMs may no longer
function on newer versions of Windows. Mac OS X users can

Office web site. Patents before

self contained PDF file of an entire patent instead of the
individual page images from the USPTO web site, is to use
the free service at pat2pdf.org .
Although the Allnatt paper was published by the
(British) Institute of Electrical Engineers, the archive

free to IEEE members, and can be downloaded by
non-members for a nominal fee.
Nyquist's 1928 paper was published in the Transactions of
the American Institute of Electrical Engineers. Like the
Allnatt paper, the archive is available at the
