There is a wonderful archive of magazines and books related to radio and electronics to be found here. In all honesty, I’ve probably downloaded most of the content. I still prefer looking through paper magazines and having once parted with my collection, I’m again on the lookout to rebuild some of it.

My main interests are magazines with radio related construction articles so I have Ham Radio Today, Practical Wireless, Radio Constructor, Radio Bygones, Radiophile, SPRAT etc.

I’m OK with many of the others such as Radio Communication (RadCom) from the RSGB, Short Wave Magazine and many others, in digital format.

Magazines I need for my collection

Radio Constructor

Most from the 1940s:

1947, 1948 and 1949: any you have

1960s: Bound Volume from August 1965 to July 1966

Later issues:

1972: January through to July, November
1973: January and September
1974: September
1975 and 1976: none needed
1977: September/October (combined issue), November and December
1978: February, March and June through to December
1979: April, June through to August, October and December
1980: January, May through to July, September through to December
1981: February, April through to August/September…the last ever issue

SPRAT Magazine from the G-QRP Club

I have these on DVD but again, like paper copies

I need:

1 to 32, 34 to 52, 56, 60, 106 to 109, 117 to about 140 I think

Radio Bygones

I think I only need issue 39

Radiophile Magazine

I only have issues 140 to 144 which is the last one I believe. If you have any of the earlier ones, that would be great.

Please note that I do have Radio Constructors to swap with you if you are a fellow collector.
