last week I did sign up for the Experimenter and its a great resource
but on the sign up page it states "However if you're not yet an EAA
member, you can still sign up for a limited time trial" then it goes
on to say that to ensure continued delivery join the EAA.
I have no problem joining the EAA but since I'm in Australia I don't
want the paper magazine delivered which with o/seas postage adds
another US$36 (about AU$58). I sent an email (to membership@eaa. org
to find out if I could join without the magazine subscription but to
date have not received a reply.
