~ Wireless World Magazine Stuff ~

Below are some scanned and cleaned up articles from my collection of Wireless World magazines 1950 to 2003 ~ I also have several duplicate and triplicate copies from 1970s to 1990s for exchange or sale (money goes to Cancer Research UK)

Still looking for Aug 1984 pre 1951 copies to scan and put on the web ~ Also looking for any dead QUAD II transformers and dead ESL63s or panels and black KT66s for future projects and articles


~ August 2019 ~

Some of the pdf files have no fonts and have watermarks embedded and may not look correct in applications other than Adobe Acrobat ~ Pages are often odd sizes but if printed from acrobat at 100% and centred should print at original size on A4 or on larger paper choose fit to printer margins for a full page image which may be easier to read
