Events for 2019

2019 - CENTENNIAL OF THE 

RADIO CORPORATION OF AMERICA (RCA)

INCORPORATED OCTOBER 17, 1919

 

In November 1919, RCA acquired the assets of the Marconi Wireless Telegraph Company of America, which then ceased doing business in the US. 

At the outset, RCA consisted of only five radio stations, and Chatham was one of them.

WA1WCC is commemorating the founding of RCA in a year-long celebration.

Watch for WA1WCC/100RCA and W1WIM/100RCA

on the bands during 2019.
