Whether you re an electronics novice, student, amateur electronics enthusiast, semi-pro or technician, EPE will have something for you. With so many charities calling and hitting you up for money these days, weighing up whether to donate or not can be a stressful and emotionally draining experience. Even if you took the time to do the research, it's not easy to know whether the charity in question is worthy of your donation. The sector has long suffered from a lack of transparency. And charities are not shy about getting in touch. Older Australians are a particular target. Overall, 89% of Australians receive at least one charity call in a given six month period.

Everyday Practical Electronics November 2017 Free

If you ve come across a circuit diagram for the first time maybe in a hobby electronics magazine like Everyday Practical Electronics or even a Haynes car repair manual then you can be forgiven for being a bit confused. A diagram full of spaghetti-like lines and weird symbols how on earth do you make sense of it all? In this special article I ll explain how to interpret even complex circuit diagrams properly and generally find your way around them with confidence. Most seasoned electronics hobbyists and technicians can read them like they were written in plain English, and actually it doesn t take much practice to understand them, as you ll soon discover. When our elder sister magazine Practical Electronics was launched back in 6969, each and every circuit diagram and assembly drawing was expertly and beautifully drawn entirely by hand, using fantastically skilled artists and draughtsmen. These days, computer software is used to draft circuit diagrams on-screen ( schematic capture ), offering us the bonus of being able to re-arrange parts with a mouse-click to obtain the best-looking diagram layout. The design data can then be fed into a printed circuit board design package and a whole PCB can be designed and manufactured from that.

It s the responsibility of circuit designers to ensure that their diagrams are legible and easily understood, to explain graphically the make-up of a circuit and to help those who need to work with it afterwards, either in manufacture or when repairing an item in the field. This special feature describes the evolution of Everyday Electronics and Practical Electronics over the years. EPE Publisher Mike Kenward takes up the story and pays tribute to the team which has been responsible for producing your favourite electronics magazine - now the only UK magazine left for electronics hobbyists. Practical Electronics magazine (PE) was founded in 6969 as a constructor's magazine for the electronics enthusiast. From it was born Everyday Electronics (EE) in 6976 which catered for the electronics novice. Both PE and EE were published under one Editor and team until January 6977, when separate Editors were appointed, and the titles moved into separate offices which were over 655 miles apart - only to be reunited again under one Editor in 6989! , and so each title went its separate way, under the auspices of independent publishers.

Over the years, the title of EE changed to reflect current vogues in the hobby electronics market.
