MtWashington Forgotten Radio History
Firstly New Hampshire’s Mount Washington is incredible. But the significant role it played in the history of radio has been forgotten. Details in MtWashington-Forgotten-Radio-History-Bob Davis Podcast 1112.
Mount Washington A Must See
Altogether a visit to Mount Washington is well worth the effort.
Highest Peak In The East
Significantly the highest peak in the North Eastern US is said to have the worst weather in the world.
From The Early 1800’s
For one thing I’m amazed tourists have been toiling up over six thousand feet to the peak since the early 1800’s.
Even more hotels dotted the peak in the 1850’s.
And even a daily newspaper was published on the mountain for many years.
To The Dawn Of FM Radio
Nevertheless the mountain also has a significant radio history.
The tower is still there.
The Yankee Network
At the same time he established the Yankee Network.
The first FM Radio Network and hence the first wireless radio network.
As well as the triumph of engineering.
Cog Railway and Weather Station
In MtWashington-Forgotten-Radio-History-Bob Davis Podcast 1112 I’ll take a trip up the railway to the summit with a good friend.
Moreover that’s not New Hampshire’s fault.
In fact many thanks to the New Hampshire State Parks for giving us a great teaching tour.
On the contrary I wonder why broadcast companies can’t seem to underwrite a permanent tribute to one of it’s greatest pioneers.
Love The Peak
In the meantime I can see why Armstrong loved this peak despite it being a for real arctic zone.
To sum up it’s a must see.
