Just found this site and think it is awesome, can anyone recommend electrical contractor magazines to subscribe to? (paper ones, I really like these better then "webzines")

Electrical Contractor Magazine (free!)

Online version:
You can also subscribe there.

(Right now, that's the only one I get...)

Other suggestions? I'd like about 30 mags a month! A new one for every day! (I put mine in the "Irish Library" on the back of the toilet...) [Linked Image]

Do you mind if We call you 'J for short sometimes? (many of us are not good typists so the shorter the better)

CEE News is a good one to subscribe to.
(I have some recent Articles there and you'll see Joe Tedesco's Photo Violations Area)


Also check the Magazine rack at that Website at left side of page.

I just subscribed to both magazines, I'm sure I had those subscriptions about 12 years ago but they never got renewed or I think I recalled them going out of business(?) - probably just rumour.

Anyway, Ive read every posted message on the newest (6) pages in the last 3 hours and have added this to my favorites list, I started in this industry in 1982 and wish this was available to me then. I am in the computer industry now (due to the terrible market of 1991) but have never lost touch or respect for my hard fought licenses.

I constantly take on electrical work but realize my skills are not as good as if I conversed daily with other electricians. I honestly am exited about this forum.

Hope I can contribute.

Welcome. Glad to have you with us.

You can also get free subsciptions to the following 2 magazines (if you qualify)

Electrical Contractor

Power Quality Assurance (a must for computer dudes)



Few things are harder to put up with than the annoyance of a good example.
