    I'm almost wishing I were this Canadian : https://www.yahoo.com/news/record-br...074923736.html ...TWO MILES OUT!
    Nothing is misguided to it's creators, only the recipients who didn't want the expectation ruined for them.

    The past few years I've been fascinated by the 'Dawn of Electricity' I buy a lot of magazines off Ebay from around 1915 - 1930. Just about any type mag has cool articles regarding 'RADIO" Most all of the first civilian radios were cobbled together at home with parts & kits. No insulated or stranded wires yet. The point to point 'wiring' was with solid rigid bare 'buss' wire. No loudspeakers yet. Just earphones. For rural folks it was the first time they ever heard concert music or a ballgame. Batteries were cool too. You needed 3 different voltages for the filaments, heaters & operating current. At first banks of glass jar cells. you only turned it on for maybe one hour a day.
