I've shipped at least 30 bundles of old QST, 73, and CQ magazines by Media 
Mail. I am always asked what they contain, and I always answer truthfully 
"technical journals".

If the post office wanted to refuse my Media Mail business I'd take them to 
Fed Ex, but I have never had an problem, and I've shipped hundreds of 
issues over the past five  years.
