FOUR MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE FEBRUARY 19 1934 STATION SEEKS BYRD CONTACT Roy Olson of Osage States Short Wave Schedule May Be Made. AilES, Feb. 19.--The chance ol talking: with the Byrd polar expedi' lion has recently added a touch of excitement to the . activities of W9JI, amateur short wave radio transmitter in the physics building at Iowa State college. No actual contact has been made ·yet, Roy Olson of Osage reports, but it is hoped that connections may be made soon and a definite schedule for conversations set. Although many short wave operators in this country are trying to contact the expedition, W9J1 is in a favored position. Arrangements were made with Thomas C. Poulter, physicist of the Byrd expedition, by which he could communicate directly with members of the physics staff at Iowa State and could also send messages to his family. Directors of the station expect to get in touch with Dr. Poulter soon. In the 2 years of its existence, station W9J1 has made more than 4,000 contacts with other amateur short wave stations. Equipment for both radio telephone and code work makes the range of the station very wide. Stations from Australia, England, New Zealand, Porto Rico, Mexico, Central America and South America have been reached. The walls of the room in which the apparatus is set are almost completely covered with colored cards from listeners and other short wave stations in all parts of the world.
