From the
"First Anniversary Issue"
Twelve months ago. the first issue of MODERN WIRELESS appeared on the bookstalls. Was such a magazine really wanted? Would it appeal to the public?. What was the circulation likely to be ? These were a few of . the questions which exercised the minds of the proprietors. The emphatically affirmative, answer of the public soon set aside all doubts, and the first issue of 20,000 copies disappeared in a few hours. The actual number of copies sold was so great that after a few months the publishers issued what few magazines can .give-a certified net sales certificate showing an average net sale of over 100,000 copies a month. The threefold ideal of MODERN WIRELESS-to give the right articles by the right authors in the right way-has animated us from: the beginning. We believed that the public wanted a magazine such as MODERN WIRELESS, and we knew that if we gave them such a magazine we could count upon wide support.
