Electrical Experimenter (05:04) August 1917

Hugo Gernsback, editor

"Nikola Tesla, one of the greatest of living electrical engineers and recipient of the seventh "Edison" medal, has evolved several unique and far-reaching ideas which if developed and practically applied should help to partially, if not totally, solve the much discussed submarine menace and to provide the means whereby the enemy's powder and shell magazines may be exploded at a distance of several miles."
This is the August 1917 issue of Electrical Experimenter. The cover story is “Blinding the Submarine” by Hugo Gernsback. Also included is an interview with Nikola Tesla entitled “Tesla’s Views on Electricity and the War” about eliminating the threat of enemy submarines, an article about women radio operators helping in the War effort, another about lightning rods, and a short story.
