The Pioneer Days - NNRC

With roots going back to 1927, the Newark News Radio Club was the country's oldest all wave listener's club. From June 1966 until the club's final bulletin in 1982, the NNRC bulletin contained a column called "The Pioneer Days." It was written by longtime member Carroll H. Weyrich of Baltimore, and it reprised early issues of the club bulletin going back as far as 1935. True to the club's broadcast band origins, the column contained a good deal of broadcast band information, but it covered other areas as well, including shortwave.
