Feminine “Ham” Heard ‘Round The World (Feb, 1936)
Feminine “Ham” Heard ‘Round The World
RADIO amateurs of six continents were contacted within 6 hours and 20 minutes recently by Miss Nellie Corry, young British radio enthusiast. The feat, regarded as a record in amateur broadcasting circles, is all the more remarkable in that Miss Corry accomplished it on a home made set costing less than $20. Miss Corry built her transmitter in her home at Walton-On-The-Hill, Surrey, England, during her spare time. Working on a 10-meter wavelength on the occasion of her record breaking broadcast, she contacted amateur stations in Europe, Asia. Africa, Australia, and the two Americas.
