  Austrralian wireless publication beginning in 1936
Australasian Radio World This magazine provided a good balance of amateur and listeners' technical articles. It was a monthly beginning in May 1936, and lasted till August 1951. It was circulated in New Zealand too. The publishers sponsored their own "All-Wave All-World DX Club" whereby one could become a lifetime member, receive a badge, and a certificate with his membership number. Each issue had a page of DX news, mostly consisting of amateur and club activities. In 1940 A.G. Hull, till then the editor of RADIO & HOBBIES, bought the magazine.  Despite purchasing a large printing press in late 1949, for installation in a local printery, Hull admitted in September 1950 that his experiment in decentralisation was a failure and he intended to move back to a Melbourne office. However, in November 1950 the magazine was sold to Radio & Electronics (N.Z.) Ltd. which had been printing a monthly called RADIO and ELECTRONICS (New Zealand) for the NZ and Australian market since April 1946. The December 1950 cover of AUSTRALASIAN RADIO WORLD included the words "Associated with Australian Radio and Electronics" and "Composite Issue" .

In 1951 the magazine became just AUSTRALIAN RADIO and ELECTRONICS in January 1951. The new AUSTRALIAN RADIO and ELECTRONICS used the same cover design of the NZ version. A NSW amateur,  The Australian magazine ceased publication after the issue of October 1951, and the New Zealand edition was sold in Australia once more, through to the 1960's, although the name changed to RADIO AND ELECTRONICS REVIEW, incorporating RADIO AND ELECTRONICS in the early 1950's and in April 1961 it was purchased by The Magazine Press Ltd. of New Zealand and the format was changed to emulate the English "Wireless World" magazine. It became RADIO, ELECTRONICS AND COMMUNICATIONS
