Note: The Name Changed to Radio & Television (Oct 1938-Sept 1941).

Short Wave Craft was another specialty title from Hugo Gernsback, focused on the new experimental interest area of short-wave reception and ham/amateur hobby work. This magazine tended to be even more about the technical aspects of making and building than his other science/tech titles. By 1937 it had morphed into Short Wave & Television and In October, 1938 the magazine changed name to Radio & Television and continued on for another three years under that name. It was then folded into Radio Craft.
