Electrical Experimenter (07:03) July 1919

Hugo Gernsback, editor

"We cannot help but pause and give honor to Lieutenant Harry G. Hawker, the daring young English pilot who undertook to fly the Atlantic Ocean over a course which was not even covered by the regular ocean steamships, let alone marked by even a single English naval or other ship. Hawker demonstrated that he had unlimited faith in his machine. This trip as planned averaged from 1850 to 2000 miles, and was to have required from 22 to 26 hours of flight."
This is the July 1919 issue of Electrical Experimenter. The cover story is “Talking Thru the Trees.” Also included is an article by Nikola Tesla, “Electrical Oscillators,” two articles about the Audion tube, a short story, and an article about early flights across the Atlantic.
