Electric Radio Magazine - Symbolic Publishing Company
Except for subscriptions and renewals, the order processing time is now at least 2 weeks due to the high volume of orders, a large order backlog, and now severe winter weather in Colorado.

Welcome to Electric Radio’s New Web Site!

Here you can subscribe to the popular Electric Radio magazine, now in in circulation over 30 years. Electric Radio is published primarily for those who appreciate and continue to use vintage radio communications equipment and also for those who are interested in the rich history of radio.

Please Note: If existing subscribers and customers find their old login will not work on this new site, please contact us for assistance.

Looking for something specific? As of January 2021, the N9OO back issue database has been discontinued. Please use the search box to the right for back issue listings..

You can also purchase a number of related products like the popular Collins and Hamarlund repair DVDs, Drake data CDs, Inrush Current Limiters, many books and other products. Choose the Resource selection just to the right, “News Items,” to see important updated information.

We depend on our readers to supply material for Electric Radio. Our reader’s interest is in articles that pertain to vintage amateur or shortwave equipment, with an emphasis on traditional AM, but articles on CW and SSB are also needed. Photos of hams in their radio shacks are always appreciated. We invite those interested in writing for Electric Radio to write, call, or E-Mail the editor. Electric Radio wishes to thank all of our regular contributors for their fine work.

The new April 2021 issue #382 was mailed April 6th.

Due to problems with the United States Postal Service, DO NOT expect timely delivery as in years past…this is totally out of our control once the monthly issues are turned over to USPS. In some areas, even 1st Class issues have taken over 30 days to arrive.

   Please be aware of extended delivery times per the USPS web site: “Except for priority express, USPS products and packages may require more time to be delivered due to limited transportation availability as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 impacts.” We have lately found delivery times to be totally unpredictable. In normal times, it used to be about 3-4 days for 1st class delivery and up to 3 weeks for Periodicals-class delivery.
