WJLD Coverage Map, 250 watts


Box 1 Folder 25: "This is box 1 number 25, which is from 1945, which is also a coverage map of WJLD when it was 250 watts. It was printed on the back of WJLD stationary dated December 20, 1945, which was a letter to Ben Franklin who was the engineer at the time from Bill Terry who was the general manager at JLD wishing him a Merry Christmas and a happy new year. We are assuming that this map was produced at around the same time as it was printed on the back of stationary. So we’re presuming that the map was accurate to that period 1945. From Ben Franklin’s memorabilia."
