Radio News (02:12) June 1921

Hugo Gernsback, editor

"The commercial operator who is forced to work in the tropics, especially during the long hot summer months, is the only one who really realizes what static is. How we dread it! Even during the winter months static is very noticeable. Ask any operator who has had cause to work down in this portion of the earth during the summer and he will put up his hand and swear--'never again.' All day long it is a continuous roaring, grinding and crashing in the receivers. During the hours of the night it is worse. Nine times out of ten the crashes will entirely blot out all signals."
This issue of Radio News is from June 1921. The cover art is titled “Mental Telepathy via Radio.” Other articles include an editorial by Hugo Gernsback about making money from radio, part 5 of Who’s Who in Radio featuring Edouard Branley, the radio compass, and static problems in the Tropics.
