    Some background on the not so famous radio pioneer and how he celebrated Christmas. I’m also planning to livestream reception of the broadcast.

    Reg Fessenden; "AM No. 1".
    Factoid: Reg's first microphones were in the RF line to the antenna and were water cooled!

    Controversy notwithstanding, the extraordinary Vienna Wireless Society (VWS) had a special event station to honor Fressenden's substantial accomplishments in the field of radio.

    Check out:

    I also operated W4F on WSPR to spread the love far and wide from my little uBITX qrp rig. If you use any of the WSPR web services, you can put W4F and see how far ol Fressenden went.
