Press Wireless Returns to Shortwave
As the opening feature in our program today, we make a return visit to the Philippines. This is the final feature in our year long series under the title Focus on Asia. Next year, we are planning to present a year long series of topics under the new title, Focus on the South Pacific. Even so from time to time, we will still present interesting topics regarding the fascinating historic backgrounds of other radio stations, large and small, in other parts of the world.
At the time, radio was quite young, and the concept of international broadcasting on shortwave was just beginning. Thus it was that PWI began to establish their own network of communication stations around the world; in some countries they installed their own shortwave communication stations and in others they utilized the facilities of already established stations. PWI also began to manufacture their own transmitters and associated electronic equipment.
