    I'd like to get a subscription to a good magazine, but not sure as to
    what's out there. I tried QST for a while, but got bored with it. I'm
    looking for something with tech how-to, projects, etc...especially
    projects, RF and otherwise. Anything out there worth the price of

    Yes, "makezine" looks good, though somewhat expensive. Their site is at The physical magazine comes out 4 times a year and has
    quite a few pages.

    In addition to Nuts & Volts and the other magazines suggested, don't
    forget our friends in England (Everyday Practical Electronics, or EPE)
    and Australia (Silicon Chip Magazine). Both have foreign subscriptions
    available for a nominal surcharge, and also have on-line versions of
    their magazines.

    If you're concerned about money, you also might want to try stopping at
    the local library and looking up back issues of Radio-Electronics and
    Popular Electronics. Great stuff, much of it as relevant today as the
    day it was written, and you can't beat the price. If you're doing
    projects from old magazines, make sure to check parts availability
    before you start.

    Good luck
  7. And how! Last month I scored a whole box full of '80s and '70s issues of
    such mags at a library sale.

    Have a look on ebay - there are always people selling old magazines extremely cheaply, often in bulk.
