1912: American Marconi buys out Massie's West Coast system including the San Francisco land station and 13 shipboard installations. [SWP, Pratt] 6

Two of the ships of the day were the tug SS Rescue, call sign RSQ, with a Massie Wireless Telegraph Company ten-inch induction coil and crystal detectors, and the banana transport SS Olinda, call sign OA, with a United Wireless Telegraph Company half KW spark, and crystal detectors. [3] These vessels may have had radio operators aboard from the companies that supplied the equipment such as Massie, just as Marconi operators went to sea on various companiesĺ vessels.


Mystery Massie Station "BD"


According to 2 QST articles, 4 years apart by Irving Vermilya, there was Massie installation in New York, NY on Jerome Avenue with call letters "BD". It was a 10 KW station. It tells of the equipment in the stagion possible being pilfered by some amaturers and the author. I have not been able to find any mantion of this station or the call "BD" in NY.
