The club, with the help of a Master, built a house to facilitate their sets and worth while aerials.

One of their first accomplishments was to receive the Darthmouth-Columbia and Harvard-Yale games and playing them through a loud speaker in the gymnasium. 2

This had to be one of the earliest sporting events received and played for an audience in the state.

In 1923 the club installed a new transmitting and receiving set that enabled them to send and receive messages with a 12,000 mile range. 3
