No I am not aware of that publication but will look into it.
Funny, something like a magazine is so expensive to send but a packet of stuff from ebay is sent free via China Post.
They must get a subsidy!

I am, after some 20+ years, allowing my subscription to lapse. The magazine has gotten thinner and more expensive. I tried to get a price break and no discount.

I wonder how many others will be doing the same?

Yes, too many pages for an article that is over the top for many readers and at the bottom of the interest scale for others. I guess it's a take what we can get attitude regarding feature articles. I find myself skimming more than reading. Years ago I was obsessed about keeping all the issues together for reference but not so much now. I doubt I'll refer back to many of them. I stopped Circuit Cellar a long time ago for the same reason.

I first subscribed to N&V's competitor Radio Electronics and Popular Electronics in the 1980s.
Then they stopped publishing and they sent my subscription to N&V. So here I am.

I subscribe to the digital pdf. I appreciate the downloadable pdfs and I will continue to subscribe.

I only subscribe to this and a few other technical magazines.

Not really a subscriber, but often buy the paper magazine from a newsstand.
