A Short Journey Down History Lane: 1939 New Zealand Radio
Shortwave radio history – communications in and out of New Zealand in 1939. This history is rich with adventure and successes that are profound. Our modern communications all stems from this historic work…
This is a short film about the romance of the radiotelegraph service that utilized the high frequency spectrum known as “shortwave” (from 3 MHz up to 30 MHz) as well as the longwave and medium frequency spectrum (below 3 MHz). This is a short film about communication to and from New Zealand on these shortwaves, using Morse code (eventually, using CW modulation). This film is a 1939 Government film scanned to 2K from a 16mm combined B/W reduction print.
On another note there is a Special Event Call for ZM90DX being used until October 31st commemorating the first ever radio contacts between ZL and VK and later into North and South America and finally Europe between 1023-24.
