Radio News (01:06) December 1919

Hugo Gernsback, editor

"This article is without doubt the most important one that has appeared in print for some years, as far as amateurs are concerned. When the Rogers Underground Aerial was first announced, many amateurs, particularly those living in cities were bitterly disappointed that they could not make use of this form of aerial due to the fact that long earth trenches were necessary. Now comes along Mr. Jones with his new invention, showing us how to use a concentrated underground aerial that all of us can use in every city."
This issue of Radio Amateur News is from December 1919. The cover story is “Underground Radio Made Possible for the Amateur.” The issue includes many other radio articles, including hand-winding honeycomb coils, the construction of vacuum tubes, radio emissions from the Eiffel Tower, and the New Brunswick radio station.
