A while ago on eBay I bought an AT&T booklet from 1929, containing articles
from the Bell Laboratories Record about various aspects of AT&T's
transatlantic HF operations. I'll be scanning and posting the entire
The articles (which predate the Ocean Gate and Manahawkin, NJ stations)
focus on the then-new transmitting station at Lawrenceville, NJ and
receiving station at Netcong, NJ.
From the introduction:
- AT&T inaugurated transatlantic radiotelephone service, via long-wave
radio, in January 1927. The transmitter was at Rocky Point, Long Island and
the receiver at Houlton, ME.
Houlton, ME was home to a US Army Signal Corps/Military Intelligence
Division wireless station sometime around WW-I.
