Silicon Chip Electronics Magazine
Projects to build do it yourself to save money, to learn new skills or simply for the fun of it!. Serviceman's Notebook Actual cases, often unusual, from the bench of a full-time serviceman. Vintage Radio bringing back to life the discards of previous generations.
Each Silicon Chip design is carefully checked and tested and readers with the appropriate construction skills should be able to duplicate the design and have it work in the same or similar manner to the prototype.
Electronics Australia - EAT - Files
"Here you will find a wealth of electronics-related software, covering everything from PCB layout through to loudspeaker design suites.Electronics Australia and EA Today are no longer being published. SILICON CHIP is now the only electronics magazine published in Australia. It is available each month from your newsagent or directly mailed from the publisher by subscription."

EPE Magazine hobby electronics magazine
They have an Online Store to buy back issues and reprints, printed circuit boards, electronics books, CD-ROMs and your favourite EPE products too.
The most fundamental skill needed to assemble any electronic project is that of soldering. It takes some practice to make the perfect joint, but, like riding a bicycle, once learned is never forgotten!
EPE - Basic Soldering Guide
"Practical Electronics magazine (PE) was founded in 1964 as a constructor's magazine for the electronics enthusiast. From it was born Everyday Electronics(EE) in 1971 which catered for the electronics novice."

Hobby Corner Imagineering On-line Magazine
David A. Johnson, - P.E. consulting electronics engineer.
(This resource by dave is very important for Electronic Enthusiasts, Engineers and R&D Engineers. I say this as an R&D Professional with more than 20 years off the ground)
Capacitance Proimity Switch Technology -The Design Corner, Imagineering E-Zine
"These switch circuits used a sensitive high impedance circuit to detect the small AC power line signals, picked up by the human body from nearby appliances."
(These are the type of technologies that lead to the Touch Screens on Tablets and Phones.

This was one of the Mags along with Radio Electronics that made me a better designer. Radio Electronics was my first favorite mag.
Elektor Electronics - EE Circuits Projects
They also have some of the issues for download. Some nice projects too are available with code for reference and experimenting.
Online Store and Members Area
They have a Forum for Discussion and Displaying your Completed projects. Even seek help when stuck with your project.
Then a Kits and Tools Store where you can buy the things you need to make the Electronic Projects, ..
I though it was time i made a collage for my old guru, then even i am getting older. I wish there was an Internet when i was young. Time to use my rusting Time Machine, Bye... Ananth delabs

Nuts and Volts DIY Magazine
Nuts & Volts is written for the hands-on hobbyist, design engineer, technician, and experimenter. The diversity of subjects appeals to all levels of experience and spans such topics as amateur robotics, circuit design, lasers, computer control, home automation, microcontrollers, data acquisition, new technology, DIY projects, electronic theory, and more, not to mention the popular BASIC Stamp.
Adding More Digital I/O to your 16-Bit Experimenter Kit
If you’ve been following the 16-Bit Micro Experimenter series in Nuts & Volts, you are already familiar with its solderless breadboard environment and the fully programmable 10 line I/O expansion bus that comes with the kit. The 10 lines can be assigned to be digital, analog or even connected to any of the PIC24F Microcontroller’s internal extensive peripheral set (i.e. dual UART, five CCP modules, ADC, Real time Clock Calendar, dual SPI, and dual I2C).
The Mini-Bench Supply
A small power supply with +5V, +12V, and -12V outputs is a handy thing to have around when you’re breadboarding circuits with both op-amps and digital ICs. You would want a switching regulator for efficiency, but linear regulators for low noise. Plus, it should be easy to build and relatively inexpensive.

Recently i found a collection of those mags at Archive.org .....
Radio Electronics Magazine at Archive.org
Hugo Gernsback, sometimes called The Father of Science Fiction, started it as Radio-Craft in July 1929. The title was changed to Radio-Electronics in October 1948 and again to Electronics Now in July 1992. In January 2000 it was merged with Gernsback's Popular Electronics to become Poptronics.
Gernsback Publications ceased operations in December 2002 and the January 2003 issue was the last.
Over the years, Radio-Electronics featured audio, radio, television and computer technology. The most notable articles were the TV Typewriter (September 1973) and the Mark-8 computer (July 1974). These two issues are considered milestones in the home computer revolution.
Radio Electronics Magazine at SWTPC
Radio-Electronics was aimed at electronics' professionals such as radio and TV repairmen. And they were men, the tag line on the cover was "For Men with Ideas in Electronics".
