ABSTRACT
The article recalls several issues of the periodical including the June 1936, June 1961 and June 1986 issues. It notes that the 1936 issue featured an editorial about the interference caused by amateur radio to broadcast listeners and other radio services. A report on the noise factors in very high frequency (V. H. F.) communication has been published in the 1961 issue. It adds that the 1986 issue has offered a discussion about small, high-efficiency loop antennas.
