Default UKs Television Magazine has ceased publication

Hello, All!

Just received a letter from Nexus Media publications about my subscription
to the UKs Television Magazine, to let me know they have ceased publication
with imediate effect.
A shame, but no great surprise really, I have a collection that goes back to
the sixties and even a few issues from the 50s .
another sad day for TV techs everywhere.



With best regards, 3T39. E-mail:

I wrote for them for many years, and things were never the same after they
brought the editing in-house, and sacked John and Tessa, who had been the
editor and assistant editor, for more years than they ( and I ) care to
remember. The guy that they brought in to edit it came from an electrical
industry paper, and it immediately showed. I, and many of the other regular
contributors rapidly came to blows with him, and many of the best writers
were lost to the magazine for ever. Most of us went over to the new magazine
that a few of the old stalwarts valiantly tried to set up in competition.
Sadly, that one hasn't made it either, and has left those brave souls rather
out of pocket. I kept taking TeleMag right up to the end, and the latest
editor that they had installed a few months back, seemed to be at least
steering it back in the right general sort of direction, but it was never
going to be the "community project" that it formerly was - written by
engineers, for engineers, edited by two people that really understood the
industry, and treated all of the contributors as friends. I still stay in
touch with Tessa over the net, and John rang me a couple of weeks back to
tell me about the demise of TeleMag. You might be interested to know that
they are both well. Still, as you say, a sad day all round. There are now no
trade mags this side of the pond, at all ...

Me too, shame but then it looks like I'll get some subscription money
back ...

The next letter I opened this morning gave me news of a lifetime license
to use radio transmitting equipment. I was happy until I found the last
to fall on the door mat - the gas bill :-(

Sad news indeed. When I was involved in TV servicing 20 years ago
Television Magazine was essential reading to keep current with what
was happening in the trade. There was a really useful write up of
faults encountered, we used to have a filing cabinet full of them all
indexed. Manys the time I was saved hours of fault finding just by
remembering that someone had had the same fault and written it up. Les
Lawry Johns was always a good read as well, made you feel like you
were part of a community. Happy days? not really, the rewards were
more satisfaction than financial. I could see the writing on the wall
for TV servicing back then. The price of a TV had hardly changed in 15
years and people were starting to regard them as a throwaway item even
then.
These days I suppose people turn to the internet for any info they
require. End of an era.

All of the US ones have died. The one that served Australia and New Zealand
died a few years back. Now it's just Circuit Cellar in the USA and Silicon
Chip in Australia. I assume Everyday Electronics and Elektor are still going
OK in Europe.

Elektor goes from strength to strength. In my opinion, it is now the best
electronics mag on the market for amateur dabbler and professionals alike.
Full of cutting edge info and things to build.
