Radio Logs and Station Lists - 1920's to the 1990's
   White's Log - Stevenson's - Burgess - Cunningham - RCA - Duplex - Andrae - Radiotron
Radio Logs were first published in the mid 1920's to aid the general public in finding stations to listen to. This was most important to much of the US population which lived far from any station.
Later, logs helped "DXers" (those who made a hobby of listening for distant stations) and even broadcast professionals. This collection has hundres of examples.
