1921 __ Gramophones broadcasts in Wellington
Comment : In 1921 a Wellington businessman, Charles Forrest, began transmitting gramophone recordings from a room in the Hope Gibbons building. Although he had no formal permit or licence he had a verbal understanding with the chief telegraph engineer that if his transmissions were causing reception problems at the nearby marine radio station, he would cease until the ship-to-shore communication was concluded.
