Radio News (02:01) July 1920

Hugo Gernsback, editor

"One of the coming wonders without doubt is radio movies. Imagine a bank of several hundred special vacuum tubes upon which the light and dark variations of a film are thrown by means of projecting apparatus. These tubes will be light-sensitive similar to the Rubidium Cells in use today. Each tube will send out an impulse by undampt radio waves. At the receiving end the process is reversed, and a similar bank of tubes reconstructs the picture and throws it upon the screen."
This July 1920 issue is the first since Radio Amateur News changed its name to Radio News. The cover art is titled “An S.O.S. or a Dream?” Articles include radio in Germany, the Otter Cliffs Naval receiving station, design of a radio receiver, and Hugo Gernsback’s editorial about radio 25 years in the future.
