The MIT Radio Society, operators of W1MX and W1XM, and probably the oldest
college radio society in the world, is having a celebration and reunion on
Monday, May 5, 1997 at the Club station in Walker Memorial, beginning at
All past and present members are invited. Additionally, I would like to
hear from anyone who has been a member/operator with a message of greetings
for the Club, and from anyone with any anecdotes about QSO's with the
station, personalities, etc.
This has been a club of personalities, including W1BB(sk), W4RX and KP2A,
and lore--there is a box of 304TL's in the store room rumored to be spares
for the big rig's driver stage in the late '40's--a push-pull
amplifier/tripler. The reunion is on the occasion of the celebration of
W1MX's new Mosely Pro 96-3 antenna installation on the tower atop Walker.
The Club has no way of locating its alumni/ae and is using this e-mail
message and ask that the information be passed on.
Let me know if you are coming. Send comments. QSP the info to interested
