NAVY MAN GIVES ALBANY CONCERT BY RADIOPHONE
Albany radio amateurs were treated recently to the first demonstration of radiophone in Albany.
Richard D. Swanson, radio operator of the destroyer Blakely, tied up at the Albany Yacht Club pier, for an hour gave a demonstration of the transmission of music from a talking machine in his quarters by radiophone that was heard with distinct clearness by Albany amateurs. Later, in his quarters, he said that although his radiophone set was only capable of transmission within a forty-five mile radius, navy operators in New York, 143 miles away, had heard his concert.
