Radio News (01:07) January 1920

Hugo Gernsback, editor

"In presenting to our readers the wireless map which forms a supplement to this issue, we sincerely trust that it will meet with approval. This map is intended to be mounted on heavy cardboard and framed under glass for display in the radio station. The chart has been compiled with the latest information, giving the names as well as the call letters of the most important radio stations of the world. An innovation which has not been shown on a wireless map before is the time-finder, or time computer."
This seventh issue of Radio Amateur News is from January 1920. The cover art is titled “His New Love.” The issue includes a Radio Map of the World, a spread showing the world radio stations as of 1920. Other articles include crystal and vacuum tube detectors, women radio operators, static elimination, and a letter from Dr. Lee De Forest.
