I was a member who renewed yearly in the early 90's. they finally hassled me into becoming a Life Member and for that I got a pretty nice leather jacket. I mainly kept up my membership because of the magazine. (It was pretty good) I NEVER got any equipment to test and never met someone who did. About 5 years ago, the magazine stopped coming. I have contacted them numerous times by phone and by email and they say gthat they have been mailing it to the wrong address by mistake. Funny thing is that my address hasn't ever changed. Anyway, I confirm my address with them and they say allow 4-6 weeks for it to start coming and it never has.
