Electrical Experimenter (07:02) June 1919

Hugo Gernsback, editor

"Imagine a man a century ago, bold enough to design and actually build a huge tower with which to transmit the human voice, music, pictures, press news and even power, thru the earth to any distance whatever without wires! He probably would have been hung or burnt at the stake. So when Tesla built his famous tower on Long Island he was a hundred years ahead of his time. Tesla has shown experimentally how power can be sent without wires over distances from a central point."
This is the issue of Electrical Experimenter from June 1919. It includes part five (“The Magnifying Transmitter”) of the six-part My Inventions series written by Nikola Tesla exclusively for the magazine, as well as another article by Tesla about the moon’s rotation, and a page illustrating various Tesla bulbs.
