Old issues and Nuts and Volts and Popular Elecronics

Post by Breadboard » Mon Feb 05, 2007 9:05 am

I am a hobbiest in electonics and thoroughly enjoy reading the back issues of Nuts and Volts and Popular Electronics. I am looking for a modest stack (no more than 40) of back issues from '01 through '05. If you are looking for a home for these issues, please contact me.

Don't expect to find any Poptronics after January 2003, as that was their last issue when Gernsback closed its doors.

I have past issues dating back to 1995 which I was preparing to have recycled. If you are still looking, let me know.

Anyone know of a complete set of Carl and Jerry articles? I had a whole bunch of old Popular Electronics with these in them. I wonder if scanning these into PDF or BMP would violate copyright laws. I know it would, but would the original publisher and/or author mind?

Could you email me with what you have, if you still have them.

It shouldn't.
I've scanned in my back issues of Nuts & Volts, and put them on CD's.
As long as these are only for you, and your not making copies to give, or sell.
You should be fine.

I still have a few 1992 issues.
But that's as far back as I have.
Since that is when I started getting the magazine.

What was the name of the article?

Unsure of the title.
Perhaps "Understanding flyback circuits" or alike. But I can be still wrong with the year, perhaps to '94 ¿?

I will be praying on my knees while you browse your issues...
Thanks,
Miguel

My N&V's start at July 92 and I did a quick scan through the 93 & 94 issues.
I found no article about flybacks in any of the issues.
Sorry. :sad:
