It would incorporate improvements he had achieved in the design of transmitter tubes. 34 Telephonic Broadcasting by 9XM Prewar “wireless squad” member Malcolm Hanson had returned to the university after his stint in the navy and enrolled as a student to continue his work toward his undergraduate degree. He arrived in late June 1920 and Terry asked him to help construct a permanent station for telephonic broadcasting. Terry had always recognized Hanson’s passion for wireless and realized that, with his three years of experience as a navy radio operator, he would now be even more useful to the Wisconsin operation.

Terry is planning to experiment with the sending of the forecast by wireless telephone, using a vacuum tube of his own invention, but up to this time, the necessary auxiliary apparatus has been needed for other purposes. Prof. ”20 Word of the experiments with voice was getting out. Miller got a letter from Lee Yorkson at the Civic and Commerce Association in Waupaca, Wisconsin, asking: “Has your wireless telephone worked out satisfactorly [sic] as yet? We are anxious to install a receiving set and receive the weather report by this method.

18 Experimentation in broadcasting sound rather than code continued, and the first non-telegraphic transmission was made sometime in the first three months of 1917. Shortly after putting his original 1915 transmitter into service, Terry grasped the limitations of the spark gap technology and began experimentation with the three-element vacuum tube. 19 During this period Terry invited some guests to his home for what he termed the “first broadcast,” a special transmission during which phonograph records would be played over the air.
