Canadian Radio in 1923
Recently, a callbook entitled 'List of Canadian Radio Stations' published in 1923 by the Department of Marine and Fisheries of the Government of Canada has been discovered. This publication gives a snapshot of the early radio scene in Canada.
Among its data is a complete list of Canadian and U.S. broadcast stations (see the Hammond Museum of Radio - data also available here in searchable form) and a list of all Canadian amateur licencees. These lists have been processed through an OCR reader and added to our database. Use the following form to look up data by any portion of the callsign, name, address or wavelength (only applicable to broadcast stations) fields. The search string is a regular expression. Remember, in 1923 the amateur callsigns did not have the 'VE' prefix (e.g. 3ABA). To convert wavelength in meters to frequency in kilohertz, divide 300,000 by the wavelength.
