Electrical Experimenter (04:02) June 1916

Hugo Gernsback, editor

"It is interesting at this time to take note of the fact that a very complete patent on an ingenious radio control system for torpedoes, etc., was issued to Nikola Tesla in the year 1898, or over eighteen years ago. At that time the science of radio telegraphy was barely on the threshold of possibilities and illustrates how far ahead of his time this great scientist is."
This is the June 1916 issue of Electrical Experimenter. The cover story is “Dropping Aerial Bombs Thru a Cone of Light.” This issue also includes an article titled “Tesla’s Early Work With Radio Controlled Vessels” and an episode of Baron Munchhausen’s New Scientific Adventures, “Martian Amusements.”
