Electrical Experimenter (03:11) March 1916

Hugo Gernsback, editor

"It may be said that Tesla, all in all, does not believe in the modern Hertzian wave theory of wireless transmission at all. ... The Tesla theory is that a wireless tower, specially constructed to have a high capacity, acts as a huge electric condenser. This is charged by a suitable high frequency, high voltage apparatus and a current is discharged into the earth periodically of a high frequency alternating wave. The electric wave is to manifest its presence at any point where there might be erected a similar high capacity tower to that above described."
This early issue of Electrical Experimenter is from March 1916. The cover shows “The Tesla Destroyer” and the feature story is titled “Tesla High Frequency Oscillator.” Also included is a chapter of Baron Munchhausen’s New Scientific Adventures titled “Cities of Mars.”
