From British magazine "Practical Electronics", this looks good, I've got a few other Phaser circuits, and they don't compare to this.

Please make yourself a favor, and use CAD software to draw schematics. Many are free.

Or even simpler, give a direct link: https://worldradiohistory.com/UK/Practi ... -S-OCR.pdf (page 50)

Taking your queries one at a time.....
"OMG, why?" I say "Why not?"
" It must have taken ages to copy this info in Excel." Yes, it did, but the lion's share of it, and a lot of other similar projects, was done a few years ago.
"...use CAD software to draw schematics. Many are free." I know there are several CAD freebies out there, but from my experiences with it, they are all way too complicated. I've tried BX, made by a firm called MCE, based in Tewkesbury in Gloucestershire - that was DOS based! When I worked for BAE, I had to use a CAD system made by Mentor Graphics - that was too complicated. I tried one that comes from RS - that was equally too complicated.
All I'm after is something that has Schematic Capture with a library attached, and the means of exporting the schematic onto, say. a Word Document.
"Or even simpler, give a direct link..." I didn't know you can do that! What would be better is to take parts of a pdf file and put it in a separate one.

Once you have the basic shapes it is can be quick and very easy to read. Personally, I find cad circuit drawings look awful and eagle, whatever it's called is worse!!
