Here are a couple of links to pdf downloads of EA and ETI magazines
If you explore the site, there is also Wireless Weekly and a few others

Bizarre that it's on a site called American radio history.

I have a handful of Wireless Weekly magazines from 1927 but they are in so-so condition.

I think the biggest roadblock to having a local website host content like this is the risk of legal action for copyright infringement. Whilst not impossible, it is a little harder to enforce even something like a take-down request across borders. I'd be pleased to host all that here but I wouldn't entertain the idea without a blessing from Silicon Chip, who I believe are the copyright holders to Wireless Weekly, Radio & Hobbies, Radio, Television & Hobbies, Electronics Australia and Electronics Today.

I am glad I now know this link because it'll give me the opportunity to run back through all of EA's early vintage radio columns. Whilst I like reading the current ones in Silicon Chip, Peter Lankshear's articles dug deep into radio theory rather than just describing repairs to sets and that is a big help with restorations for people like me who don't do it full time.

You know, https://vintage-radio.com.au/default.asp?f=5&th=37

Also, I found out who donated the info to americanradiohistory.com, but obviously I can't say.

Robbbert. sorry forgot all about that site, senior moment

I don't suppose you have the issue with " Restoring a 1946 HMV Model 456A mantel radio - August 2013 Silicon chip" that I could get a copy of this article please.
