Default Practical Wireless in W H Smiths

Hello All

A visit to my local W H Smiths (Cirencester) yesterday revealed that they have moved everything around on the magazine shelves. To my surprise Practical Wireless (a single copy) had been promoted to the front of a reasonable height shelf.

Be interesting to see if it stays in its prime position.

best regards ... Stef

When PW reaches the top shelf then it will have arrived!

Just the mucky stuff on the top shelf! I enjoy PW and for a few years now get mine delivered each month.

I do have an electrician friend who refers to his electrical catalogues as his porn.

Not sure how much longer WH Smiths will survive. Most I've visited recently are VERY sparsely populated.

Gone are the days when I bought six different electronics/PC magazines every month. It's all online now though I do miss the 'hands on' of a magazine and now look forward to receiving my SPRAT magazine quarterly.
