Those pesky virus induced supply chain issues that have disrupted all sorts of diverse commerce and have created a delay in the delivery of QST magazine, the membership journal of ARRL:

Due to the widespread paper shortage and related supply chain issues, the December 2021 issue of QST will mail approximately one week later than usual, arriving in homes the week of November 22.

Electronics components have been particularly hard hit by these disruptions and have seriously impacted the auto industry, but who would have thought we would see a widespread paper shortage delaying delivery of a printed magazine?

Printed copies of QST magazine and Thanksgiving turkeys appear just the latest items to be impacted by those lingering supply chain issues.

How long will the disruptions last and what will be next?

The good news is that ARRL members can read the digital edition of the December issue now.
