OUNGEST of the Extra-Curricular Activities of VVilmington High
School is the Radio Club. When organized in October, 1929, its
3 primary purpose was set forth as "the complete radiofication of
Wilmington High School."
During the first semester of its existence, the organization was taught
radio technique by Mr. E. Brant Boylan, Chief Engineer of VVILM at the
studios of the Delaware Broadcasting Company. Trips have been made to the
factories and laboratories of the Radio-Victor Corporation of America at
Camden, N. J. Such prominent men as Mr. H. E. Kaign, Mr. Herbert Hunter,
Mr. H. B. Duncan, Mr. William Frederick, and Mr. I.. B. Hathorn, all radio
engineers, have consulted with members of the club.
Plans as they now stand call for a "mike" in Mr. Talbot's office, a large
dynamic reproducer in the auditorium, the cafeteria, and each of the gyms,
and magnetic speakers in all the homerooms. By means of this system Mr.
Talbot can command the attention of the entire student body at once. Many
of the educational programs now being broadcast will be made available to
the various departments.
The construction of a short wave receiver, with the ultimate goal an
amateur radio station, is another ideal on which the organization is working.
Several members have built short-wave receivers of their own design, and report
trans-oceanic and trans-continental receptions. As there are no more than forty
amateur stations operated by High Schools in the United States, most of which
are in technical schools, this second project of the Radio Club may bring
distinction to Wilmington High School.
