Historical Notables!

Welcome to our notables section, a hat tip to the hams who came before us.

Back in November of 1921 when the club was formed, there were 11 radio sets (not all necessarily transmitter/ receiver combos) in Moose Jaw owned by W.R. Pottle 4AO, Alf and Jack Mather (4AC), Doug Smith (4DN), Jack Brickett, Pat Bayley, A.E. Saunders, E. Meadows, A. Rozell, W. Seaborn, and L. Gelser. As a matter of note, around 1926 or 1927, J.E. Brickett's call was 4HH. Also during this time period were Moose Jaw Amateurs S.J. Baker 4IW, A.C. Cox 4BF and C.S. Banting 4CP.
