Started out with 589 copy of Johnny on 7.122 and did manage to get checked in but the QSB moved his signal below the noise, and OMG there was a lot of that! At least Zeta let my signal thru for a brief period. Now lets see what happens on 80...  ;-)

Been on CW since 1963. The commonly used meaning for BT is a pause.  May not be technically correct, but that is how it is used.

Thank you so much Neil! This saves me some space on my already cluttered up hard drive and I notice I can view the images much better in the PDF version which is great because my eyesight isn't what it used to be, a result of type II sugar diabetes. I zoomed out to 50% for the best view of 2 pages at once, but being able to zoom in on one page at a time is great! I'm going to delete the Zip file if I can to free up group space for more group members to upload more photos without exceeding the limit groups dot io has on the amount of storage we have available. If Roy, AC9DN, would delete the 22 individual jpg image files it would free up a lot more space as well. Again, thanks so much! The images in the PDF file look fantastic!

Looks good!
  I love the “Radio Department” pages! I guess the word didn’t reach the editor about the radio station operating at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. Wireless transmissions started in 1914 and the station was licensed as 9XM in 1915. Experimental music broadcasts began in 1917. The station continues to this day as WHA AM, still licensed to the University of Wisconsin.

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).

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Thanks to Bob, WA2CKY & Neil, WA7VHT for making this wonderful historical document available to us.
