1923 __ Radio Station on Gasoline Truck
Comment : Station WTAT, Boston, Mass., opened last week. It consists of a Western Electric transmitter, which delivers 100 watts of radio frequency power to the aerial. It is built entirely on a gasoline truck, making the whole unit portable and easy to transport to any part of the Boston territory. Wavelength used is 244 meters. Plans have been made to broadcast the various Electric Community Shows by means of WTAT which will be taken to each show. When no electric shows are held broadcasting will be done direct from the Edison Service building at least twice a week during the winter. The station in part is intended to develop a method of communication between the Edison Light generating station and the sub-station within the territory, and also to maintain communication between the service buildings and maintenance and trouble teams.
