The loss of most of the traditional electronics hobbyist publications has left a void in the information available to beginners and experts alike. Your humble editor spent some time at the library this Holiday to recover some of the lost knowledge from the Golden Era of Electronics Magazines.
Presented below are some of my favorite articles along with links to publications still available from these popular authors.William Sheets and Rudolph Graf
Two of the most prolific authors in the Gernsback era were William Sheets and Rudolph Graf. Articles by Sheets and Graf covered all manner of transmitters and a good variety of other electronics topics.North Country Radio's MPX 2000 FM Transmitter
Build This Carrier Current Audio Transmitter
Build the MPX 96 FM-Stereo Transmitter
Build a Low-Power AM Transmitter
CW and AM Modulation methods
Crystal oscillators and circuits
Power Supplies and Circuits

* Copyright Notice and Disclaimer The title Popular Electronics was sold to Gernsback Publications and their Hands-on Electronics magazine was renamed to Popular Electronics in February 1989. This version was published until it was merged with Electronics Now to become Poptronics in January 2000.
In late 2002 Gernsback Publications went out of business and the January 2003 Poptronics was the last issue. These great publications will surely be missed
Because the copyright holder has gone out of business, this article is reprinted here for those who might never have seen these remarkable hobbyist publications.
