'[OT] just for Hams'

I was going through some old hardcopy files, and came across some
stuff from a USENET feed that seemed to be from the magazine QRX
(do they still publish this?).  Does anyone know of a QRX type
mail list running these days?  QRX is the amateur experimenters
group.

I believe you are thinking of QEX.  It is published by the ARRL:

While this thread is going, there's something I just gotta (got to) ask:
what does Ham stand for?  Is it an abbreviation, acronym, colloquialism?

I have been an amateur radio operator for 39 years and I have never heard that
the word "Ham" was an abbreviation of anything.

Someone lost in the annals of history exclaimed (via spark) "damn ham
fisted amateurs" noting the poor and sloppy sending style, as if the
amateur in question had a ham (the meat) at the end of his sending arm.

I forget where I saw it, but somebody claims that the term HAM originated
as a CW (morse code) abbreivetion for the name of an amateur radio club at
Harvard University (hence the H) back in the early days of radio.

I personally suspect it was borrowed from the term "ham actor" which
probably predates amateur radio.
