Amazing Popular Science article from 1949, back when you could build your own TV station – “California amateur sends voice and picture over transmitter made from $500 worth of war-surplus parts. PULSING through the California skies from a weather-beaten back-yard shack, the image of a beautiful brunette flows into television receivers around San Francisco Bay. The boys who have seen her call the vision Gwendolyn. Reproduced by a collection of secondhand tubes and war-surplus video equipment, Gwendolyn represents the first standard TV image broadcast successfully and repeatedly by an amateur.” Thanks Charles!
