Subject: Nuts & Volts ESR Meter
FYI, the January 2016 issue of Nuts & Volts magazine has an ESR meter.
It uses a 1ma panel meter, but of course one could substitute a resistor
and use a voltmeter or a multi-meter with a 1ma scale as well.
(Though I see the January issue is not there yet).
It also looks like one can get a 3 month complementary subscription via
the URL http://nutsvolts.texterity.com/nutsvolts .
The digital edition is well worth subscribing.
Better yet, if you subscribe for at least 1 year you can be on their
"Preferred Subscriber Network" (no extra charge - just a check-box when
you subscribe) which gives you access to *all* the "digital archived"
(which I found to be PDFs) issues !!
(BTW, Everyday Practical Electronics, EPE, lost me as a subscriber when
they did away with ordinary PDFs and instead have this odd locked thing
with a plug-in. I refuse to subscribe to an online edition of a
magazine where I cannot be assured of permanent access to the issues I
paid for! I don't find their "EPE PDF" version with its plug-in to be
acceptable. I seem to recall that they restricted printing such that
one could not simply print it to a PDF either. Too bad.).
Thanks for this post Jay.
On the Viperpits forum I received a digital issue (PDF) some 8 months ago.
I remember it was fun reading, even if I was not planning on building it.
Thanks also for the hint "Preferred Subscriber Network" - I checkmarked it!
I subscribed just a few minutes ago. My first issue will be February 2016.
I have not yet checked, but with the "Preferred Subscriber Network",
I hope to have lots of reading stuff during the season's holidays.
Hmmm, as if I had nothing else to do :-/
The list may have a lot of chatter, but the "Delete" key is always within
reach. But your post is exactly one of the reasons to stay aboard!
