Pioneering Wireless

The Model Engineer and Amateur Electrician

The Model Engineer and Amateur Electrician is a still in publication magazine that in its beginnings occasionally included articles on Wireless Telegraphy. It was first published as a monthly in January 1898, became a bi-monthly in January 1901, and (after dropping the word "Amateur") became a weekly in January 1903. After the Great War the magazine stopped including articles on radio, dropped the words "and Electrician" from its title, and focused itself exclusively on fine-scale model building. Found in the below pages are some of the earliest radio construction projects to be published in a magazine, begining in 1899 with articles such as how to use a Wimshurst machine to send wireless messages.
