These are ideal for anyone with an e-reader or iPad. The server is probably taking a hammering! :-P

americanradiohistory.com has a faster server and bigger choice.

It's worth looking at the old 20/30/40s UK radio mags too, fascinating history in them, and how people tried to build real radios ;-)

No Radcoms on that site, but soooo much more.

And back up again as of typing this, so if you haven't already then I suggest you get your winter reading downloaded ASAP in case it goes down again.

Yet more free magazines for you guys:

Anyone fancy a couple of recent copies of 'Practical wireless' magazine, to view or download?

http://magazinelib.com/?s=practical+wireless


What about a copy of May 2017 RacCom?

http://magazinelib.com/?s=radcom


If that doesn't float your boat, then what about four up to date copies of Radio User?

http://magazinelib.com/?s=radio+user

Good site this with loads of stuff and not just radio related, for example try searching for Playboy, or Hustler - not that I would do such a thing obviously!!
