Is Bank Note Reporter Magazine a good resource for the collector?

I'd like to know if the Bank Note Reporter Magazine is worth getting a
subscription. I've heard from many people they are placing a lot of advertsiing
space and not very many articles to aid the collector.

Can anyone shed light on this topic?

Thanks for a moment of your time.

Happy collecting to everyone.

IMHO, the two must-have subscriptions are SPMC/Paper Money and Bank Note Reporter.  Not so much for the ads, but to know what's going on in the hobby.  They are very complementary to each other.

Thanks for the feedback much appreciated. I heard from a number of 

people the articles were not very informative as previously since many 

people writing for the bank Note Reporter had retired and they brought 

a great deal of insight and content to the publication.
