I'm interested in the radio equipment used by Adm, Byrd, for both Arctic and Antarctic expeditions.
There were fixed and portable stations, including for airplanes and dog sleds.
There are many mentions of radio comms in books and reports, but of course no details like brands or circuitry.
Does anyone have citations to relevant information?
I am aware of the Polar Times.
