In the short period from approximately 1905 through 1913 the foundations of modern radio were firmly established and deployed. Although the components were bulkier and the methodology differed (especially regarding signal 'gain' schemes), the systems developed were mostly functionally equivalent to that of systems still often employed. A DIY radio enthusiast is therefore well served by reading wireless books and magazine articles from that period.
