Radio Magazine

  Radio set construction and electronics from 1921 to 1947.

"Radio Magazine" (1921-1947) was one of the earlier technically oriented radio publications. It began in November, 1921 as the successor to Pacific Radio News.  By the late 1920's it had changed to focus on the receiver sales and service trade. In 1947 it became Audio Engineering and served the high-end audio enthusiast until the late part of the century.

The origin of the Handbook series was 1934's "5 Meter Radio Telegraphy" by Frank Jones. The second edition was labeled "West Coast Handbook" and published by Pacific Radio publications, editors of "Radio Magazine". The 1937 3rd edition was labeled as the Jones Radio Handbook, as was the supplement issued later that year.
By 1938, the title had stabilized as, simply, "Radio Handbook" Frank Jones compiled the first editions, and then W.W. Smith took over in 1938, followed by R.L. Dawley, with William Orr being the editor from 1959 on.
