The text you see in the search results may be inaccurate or garbled as Optical Character Recognition on old documents is not perfect, so try different keywords if you don't get the desired results. The text will be clearer in the full page view of the selected reference. The file linked to each search result is a fast-loading single page PDF and will be an image of the original where the search reference occurs. You will see a clear page just as published when you select any of the results. There are now 310,000 indexed pages so enjoy your exploring of radio's history!
