From the first issue
PRACTlCAL WIRELESS makes its debut in the confident belief that it will receive a hearty welcome from the large and ever-growing circle of wireless
Pnthm;iasts, more particularly those interested in home construction and the experimental side of wireless. Although in the brief space of a very few years the knowledge
of this fascinating new world of the ether has grown to large proportions, we are still
little more than on the threshold of the intriguing possibilities the future holds forth. Rapid as the advances have been, the near future will bring forth new discoveries, new ideas, and new techniques just as certain as day follows night, and every wireless enthusiast, if he is to derive
full pleasure and interest from his hobby, will require as an absolute necessity that
hia knowledge be kept right up to date.
