Are you like me? Suffering from a 'Corona Boner' because of not being able to visit your girlfriend and relieve the pressure? Fed up talking about tomato plants and hemorrhoids on 80 Meters every day?


Never mind all of that, put your feet up and have a read of these magazines from our friends across the pond:

I lived with a woman a few years back who hated all my magazines cluttering the place up and gathering dust not the mention the cost when she could have been buying lampshades and knickers - bloody women!

Here is the latest edition just for you, with no dust or cost guaranteed (or knickers).

Well I actually caught up with reading all the back issues that I had downloaded a few days back as my internet broke for the day!

So just in case your internet goes boobies up for 24 hrs and if you have any space left on your hard drive, download the very latest copy of Radio User.

Even better than 'Sex and drugs and pancake rolls'.

I will be glad when the barbers open, I am starting to look like 'Captain Caveman' on a bad day!

Just push the hair out of your eyes and read the latest ARRL offering:

Well you will be pleased to hear that I could wait no longer for the barbers to open and I bought some cheap hair clippers and I no longer look like 'Captain Caveman' but instead with my shaved head I now look like an extra from a 'Zombie Apocalypse' movie!

Never mind, it will grow back (I hope) and here is the latest Editions of Radio User:

Radio User July 2020:
https://magazinelib.com/all/radio-user-july-2020/

Edit: Hurry up and read/download this edition as many of the past magazines have been removed - cant complain though and I still have a load left to get through on the laptop.

All the radio mags seem to have been removed from the 'magazinelib.com' website, but there is still plenty of other stuff on there if you have other interests like cycling in my case.

I will keep my eyes open and maybe find another source for radio mags, if you come across any let us all know!

Will do, thanks very much for the previous posted material. The site made me laugh, they had old copies of some top shelf stuff that others here may have cum across in younger times πŸ€£πŸ˜‚

I find that the older mag links remain on the site, but after about 1 month they remove the actual content.
Probably to save server space or something.
The trick is to check in once a week and do a search for the latest issue ;-)

Yes WNP, it looks like you are correct. The latest practical Wireless is definitely available as I just downloaded it, so if you want it, get it ASAP.

As usual just click on the link below the front cover pic.

This is quite interesting (well to me it is!) a free to download copy of 'Radio ZS'.

'Radio ZS' is the house magazine of the 'South African Radio League' and is good to compare it with the other radio societies magazines that I have linked to in the past such as RADCOM and QST.
