AN AMERICAN TREASURE
DIAGRAM OF AMPLIFIER COMPLETLY
As many of you know, I specialize
in finding old American reporting pictures and stories of long ago
that have been overlooked, seldom found and rarely read. Here are
three stories entitled AN AMPLIFID FOR YOUR RADIO, RADIO JACKS and
HOW A BROADCASTING STATION IS RUN by Herbert D. Miller (formerly
Broadcasting Director of WGI) as published in this old American
magazine in 1915. The diagram and descriptions and instructions on
how to assembed an ampliefier and radio jacks intially caught my
attention. These descriptions are highly technical and way beyond
my expertise. However, the third item is a look back into the time
of the first radio stations and how to run them. Great fun read.
i.e. The Government required local stations back 82 years ago to
heed SOS signals from ships by listening three minutes out of every
15 minutes. They were also required to stand by at five minutes of
eleven o'clock in the evening to let the time signals from
Washington go through. On one evening in question, both of these
events occurred as a lovely singer finished one of her numbers at
about that time. The announcer went to the microphone and without
thinking how what he was going to say would sound said, "You have
just heard Miss Jones sing. We will now stand by for time and
distress calls". You can imagine the singer ws not flattered! Great
fun read. The pages are 11 by 14 inches -- in great condition. Some
of you might have this great story for framing or placing it on
your coffee table.
THIS IS THE ORIGINAL PIECE 82 YEARS OLD.

receive from finding a piece I like, buy it, read it, research it,
