    Looks like Nuts & Volts seems to have disappeared. Can't get it at any
    newsstands I used to.

    Other than the remaining ham magazines, are there any other electronics
    mags left for hobbyist?
     
  2. I saw an issue here the other day, when it did seem like it hadn't been
    there for a few months. Perhaps they are suffering distribution problems.

    Where you look may be important. They may not want to bother with
    locations that aren't likely to get sales, or for that matter locations
    may not want to bother with a magazine that takes up space on the racks
    but won't sell well.

    You can check their website, maybe even ask them if there are distribution
    problems or a bigger problem:

    Not in North America.

    Subscribe ... it's cheaper. There's also "Servo," a relative of Nuts &
    Volts. Can't leave out Circuit Cellar.

    The very day I posted this, my regular source had the latest issue. He
    said indeed there had been some distribution problems.
     
  5. There are no more general interest US electronic magazines.

    Elektor in Europe is your best bet except because they got in a
    pissing match with Ed Dell you have to resort to subterfuge to get it.

    The other English language magazines are from the UK. Electronics
    World was the best but I no longer see it very often.

    subscriptions

    Here in the UK we still have EPE http://www.epemag.wimborne.co.uk/

    Also available online here and they are offering a free issue to download
    and check out.

    I still see Electronics World in the newsagents, and we also get a mag for
    the TV service trade which is still hanging on in there

    but I think these days they are an endangered species.
