Abstract:

This history of radio communications in the Baltimore District, Corps of Engineers, was prepared under authority of Engineer Regulation 870-1-1, 1 September 1971, and District Regulation 870-1-1, 12 March 1974. It endeavors to record the beginning, the growth, and the use of this means of communications among District personnel and to show how in a period of 26 years the system expanded from two small stations of limited range to a complex assortment of more than 250 fixed, portable, mobile, and ship stations covering the entire District. It also gives credit to a number of private individuals and organizations that have contributed to the Districts emergency communications system.
