Yes, JP. After you log in, go to "News".....then, "Soaring Magazine online". On that page you'll see the link to the reports in the upper left--hand corner.

If you are unable to log in, let us know which reports you're interested in and one of us will hopefully forward them on. Note that some of his findings differ from the Idaflieg tests of the same models. Not surprising as they use different tools for their measurements.

I am still awaiting the promised info on how to login to that area. I
can still login (over and over) to what is really the old web site
(members.ssa.org), but the Dick Johnson Reports page there is sending me
to the Magazine Online page which wants the newfangled login.

Thank you Michael. Unfortunately I cannot see a link in the upper left of the Soaring Magazine page. I'm probably doing something wrong.

I use "The wayback machine" to search for old links. You might try this:
https://web.archive.org/web/20180905...w=blog&id=2395
It's a link from 2018.

A link for the wayback machine is: https://web.archive.org/ Provide a URL, it offers dates that an archive was made. Click on one, then navigate as normal. I searched on "ssa.org".
