Thanks, Denise – for your interest. Somewhere in my files I have an article from the Milwaukee Historical Society about Radio in Milwaukee, and although that does not mention the Amateur Radio Club, it mentions MSOE in connection with the origin of WISN which was at MSOE. – At that time “radio” was all home-made anyway, including broadcast. There was no distinction – and that would have been about the era you mentioned. Anyway, if you have an interest (and don’t have that article) let me know and I will try to find it.
Probably so – The publication was a quarterly then (some years ago) -- A few years ago an old alum sent us an old “QSL Card” (what hams use to confirm a contact) and that is quite old, having the call sign without the W (or K) prefix. Next time I am in the “shack” (=operating location / room ) I will take a look. I pasted a copy of it into the Treasurer’s book – The date might be of interest.
Thank you for the kind note, Denise. My hangup right now is to get hold of the telephone numbers of the club president and also VP. -- Is there a possibility if I would “pick the registrar’s brain”?? I suppose they would have that info. But would it be possible to divulge?
I will be on campus later. Meanwhile, I have already filled out the form several times on-line, because every time there is a snag I lose it. Perhaps there is a way of keeping the draft (?) -- Anyway, SOON !!
