for efforts on this list…
I have subscriptions to the following magazines of interest to microwavers and ATVers. The opinions of content and importance to microwavers are entirely my own. I am always on the lookout for the best magazines in the world on microwaving published in English or French , so please share your tips on same with me. I know that there are microwave publications by the San Diego and RSGB groups but I have not seen them to date.
