I just came upon your Shortwave Central and thought you might be interested in some personal history.
I was very young (born 1931) so details in my memory are scarce. I do remember the first Pan Am flight landing, probably because it was the biggest excitement so far in my life. My mother and her three children left Guam in about 1937 and my father left and rejoined us in California 1939. Very shortly after that he was called to active duty as a navy radioman. He served all of WWII In the Pacific.
