W6BAM in Santa Ana, California.

Late 1920's

Photo of Receiver (dated 1926-1928) - Notice the bank of batteries under the table.

These photos are from 1929. The description is a Colpitts circuit using a "211" tube running 50 watts. Shelly was still using the same Vibroplex bug when I first met him in the 1960s

These are a few photos that were given to me by W6BAM about 10 years ago. They are probably from the late 1920's or early 1930's
