The July issue of "Monitoring Times" magazine, which arrived yesterday,
has an interesting article on early shortwave broadcasting in the US.
While the focus is the west coast, the article mentions Boston's WBOS
and WRUL. I've been aware of both of them, but we've heard very little
of their history, even in Donna's book.
I know that WBOS was operated by Westinghouse, then taken over by the
government during World War II, and then closed down after the war. I
know that WRUL was also taken over by the government, but apparently it
resumed private operations after the war. I saw it listed in White's
Radio Log in the early 1960s, and then I believe it became WNYW -- Radio
New York Worldwide -- which I remember hearing once in the mid-1960s. I
believe the transmitter was in Saugus, if I'm remembering right.
