WIRELESS TELEGRAPHY LICENSE 1923, 1923

Paperwork relating to an application for a wireless license in 1923 under the Telegraphy Act of 1904 it was necessary to have a license to receive wireless messages by Telegraphy and a separate licence to transmit telegraphy messages. Francis Leslie Freeland was under 21 in April 1923 so his father had to apply on his behalf J.H.Freeland. The licence obtained was for the reception of telegraphy signals and also to experiment with equipment of his own. The Aerial had to be no more than 100 feet high and no more than 100 feet long; the use of a heterodyne oscillator directly connected to the aerial was not permissible between the hours of 9PM and 11PM weekdays and Sundays and not between the wavelengths of 300 to 500 metres. Also supplied at the time by the Controller and Accountant General Mr H.N. Bunbury of the General Post office was an application form for transmitting equipment. This does not appear to have been used.
