WorldRadio was a monthly amateur radio enthusiast magazine published in the United States from July, 1971 to November, 2008. The magazine was published in English and drew its subscription base primarily from the United States of America and Canada, although it had subscribers around the world. The staff of the magazine had an amateur radio club that has been assigned the call sign WR6WR. This magazine is unrelated to a magazine called "WORLD-RADIO" published in the United Kingdom prior to WWII.
