Radio News (02:09) March 1921

Hugo Gernsback, editor

"The development of radio telephony has been very slow as far as the amateur is concerned, and it does not at all receive the attention it deserves. Amateurs still look upon a radiofone set with awe and it is seldom indeed that they can be induced to work up sufficient courage to put together a set. Most of the amateurs that one meets have in their possession ready-made equipment, but few if any, think it worthwhile to spend the time and energy to construct a set themselves."
This is the March 1921 issue of Radio News. The cover is titled “Short!” Articles in this issue include part two of Who’s Who in Radio featuring Dr. J. A. Fleming, coverage of the Rome transmitting station, resistance-coupled amplifiers, operating transmitter vacuum tubes on AC current, and the radio telephone station on Santa Catalina Island.
