Description

Radio Electronics was a monthly electronics magazine published under various titles from 1929 to 2003. Hugo Gernsback initially published the magazine entitled “Radio Craft” in July 1929. The publication was renamed “Radio Electronics” in October 1948 incorporating “Short Wave Craft Television News Radio & Television”. The publication was renamed a third time to “Electronics Now” in July 1992. In January 2000 it was merged with Gernsback's “Popular Electronics” to become “Poptronics”. Gernsback Publications ceased operations in December 2002; January 2003 was the magazine’s final issue. Over the years, Radio-Electronics featured articles on audio, radio, television and computer technology. Two notable articles, the TV Typewriter (September 1973) and the Mark-8 computer (July 1974), are considered milestones in the home computer revolution.
