Radio News (01:05) November 1919

Hugo Gernsback, editor

"The ether is free once more for transmitting to the American amateur. While the Government has consented towards the lifting of the ban, It should be understood by all that this is at best only a transitory stage. By this we mean that indications point to the fact that it may not be permanent. There are several bills before Congress now, all seeking regulations or modifications of radio, particularly of radio transmission. This, of course, means radio telegraphy as well as radio telephony."
This fifth issue of Radio Amateur News is from November 1919. The cover art is “Local Forecast: Stormy.” The issue includes two essays, by Greenleaf W. Pickard and Lee De Forest, arguing against government control of radio, and a similar editorial by Hugo Gernsback, plus two articles on aspects of the Audion tube, and an article on the production of bakelite.
