Radio News (01:12) June 1920

Hugo Gernsback, editor

"If, in the near future, you happen to see a queer looking baby carriage, self propelled and with the weird power of being able to turn street corners, make a complete 360-degree turn; that is, retrack its direction, all this without any visible control by Mr. Baby; or, on the other hand, if you happen to notice a strange cart dashing about city streets also without any apparent means of control yet having a very definite aim or destination, do not be alarmed—the radio-controlled bus has made its appearance."
This June 1920 issue is the final issue of Radio Amateur News before the name shortened to Radio News the following month. The cover art is “Radio Controlled Car.” Articles include the radio-controlled bus, Marconi’s yacht Electra, new coil design, and British amateur radio licenses.
