Collection Overview

Biography / History
The University of Kentucky Amateur Radio Club was founded in 1916 by Ernest L. Baulch. Due to World War I the Club did not begin to function in earnest until 1919 when the school received a Special Land Station license that allowed it build a high power and high frequency radio station in what is now Pence Hall. By 1920, the station was broadcasting at a range of 500 miles. In October of 1920 the UK radio station received its first radiotelephone receiver, which allowed station operators to hear stations in France, provide the campus with accurate time-of-day information from the Naval wireless station, and listeners were able to hear the 1920 World Series. By 1922, the Amateur Radio Club had one of the largest memberships on campus but numbers dwindled over the next year. The Amateur Radio Club ceased to exist by 1923.
