This postcard is in a scrapbook that I had in my attic from 1933. It was a reply postcard that WRPI’s predecessor (WHAZ) mailed to those who sent letters to the station

Note that RPI’s WHAZ-AM only broadcast on Monday evenings. But, once a month, it transmitted “clear channel” across the entire United States.

The bell pictured has an interesting history, as it was used in the very first experiment demonstrating electrical communication in 1831. WHAZ used the bell in several broadcasts.

I hope this is interesting, and that someone can use this image to post on WRPI’s website
