Re: File /1916 Telegrapher magazine/The Northwest Telephone and Telegraph Review Magazine October 1916 Edition Zip uploaded #file-notice


FANTASTIC READING!!!  Anyone with an interest in telegraphy and its history will bathe in the greatness of ingenuity. A little romance, words of fame, and outstanding historical information make this document well worth the time to read and excite the mind to days of yesteryear.

On a more serious side this document has preserved the history of electrical/electronic communications.  Today we enjoy so many ways to communicate electronically that we either forget or do not know how we got here.

Thanks to Bob, WA2CKY & Neil, WA7VHT for making this wonderful historical document available to us.

Thanks for posting the images from the great telegraphy magazine.  This afternoon I decided to make an attempt at converting the folder of images into a single PDF document, with some basic OCR (making most but likely not all of the document text searchable).  I did not attempt to test all of the OCR or do further editing.  The file is now quite a bit smaller than the collection of individual images (15.5 MB). 
The PDF document has been uploaded to the files area on the 4sqrp website at:

This is a Zip file version of Roy AC9DN,s Upload titled 1916 Telegrapher magazine. I rotated the photos 90 degrees so they appear upright with each image containing 2 pages each from the October 1916 Edition of The Northwest Telephone and Telegraph Review Magazine. I edited the images a wee bit to sharpen the text slightly and then renamed and compressed them all into this 41.06 Mb zip file. Very 72 de Cliff, KU4GW 4SQRP#536
