Re: geocode/sitename data
- My experience differs in this regard.
Even numbered MURs, in my patch, were headed south or west. Odd
numbered ones headed north or east.
So, MUR202 MMPHTNMA - NSVLTNMT was the westbound direction of MUR
201/202 MMPHTNMA - NSVLTNMT, while the eastbound direction of the same
MUR was MUR 201 MMPHTNMA - NSVLTNMT. Similarly, for MUR 205/206
IPLSIN01 - LSVLKYCS, the 205 would be northbound and the 206 is
southbound. Wish I had a batch of old COLR Cards around the house
Concur on the 1 - 99, 201 - 299 for LL, with 101 - 199 for Associated
Cherryville seemed to be one of the more popular "Q" sites (CHVLNJQA)
in the East. I remember talking to the guys there and their reporting
that on a clear day they could walk outside and see the NYC skyline.
Seems that many of the early "Q" sites ended in "Q5000", such as
FRTNTNQ5000, ARKBMSQ5000 etc...

- Here's an article from the May 1949 issue of Electrical Engineering magazine
about a 2 GHz microwave relay link built by General Electric for
transmitting TV programming between New York City and Schenectady, NY.
Especially interesting are the 28 foot square equipment cabins atop the
125-foot towers at the relay stations.
