Editorial Notes . . .
Our Third Birthday WITH this month’s issue the "Australasian Radio World" celebrates its third birthday, and commences its fourth year of service to readers. Prior to May, 1936, when the first issue of "Radio World" came off the press, there did not exist a locally-produced magazine serving the general technical radio field in Australia. That there was a real need for such a paper was soon evidenced by the enthusiastic support accorded the first issue of "Radio World" by those it was intended to serve. Within a week of publication letters of appreciation started to pour in from all parts of the Commonwealth — they have been coming in steadily ever since, to such an extent that in the past three years several thousand must have come to hand. With such a reception, the paper could not help going ahead, until to-day it is fully established, with a Commonwealth-wide network of readers, all with a keen interest, professional or amateur, in the technical side of radio. COMMENCING with this issue the magazine is to be thoroughly overhauled, and many new features added to give readers the best possible service. This month there is a new cover design, new type, and the magazine is printed on heavier, more expensive paper. The content is under consideration as well, and the scope of the magazine is to be widened to cater for the varied interests of those whose acquaintance with radio extends beyond the tuning controls. While widely differing classes of readers are to be catered for, it is felt that all have one thing in common, and that is a deep and abiding enthusiasm for all things technical in radio. LASTLY, a word of appreciation is due to the trade for its consistent support of the magazine during the past three years. Such support is a real tribute to the vital service the "Radio World" is giving, and proves its worth as one of the finest advertising mediums available in the technical radio field in Australia. For the future, both readers and advertisers can rest assured that the "Radio World" policy of "service first and always" will be just as rigidly maintained as it has been in the past.
