Re: Oregon Amateur Radio Pioneers List


Eugene – 7JU – 1kw – James M. Morris – by June 1921.

You may have recognized this one as a longtime KOAC radio/TV employee (1928-1963).

In his book, “The Remembered Years (KOAC Golden Anniversary of Broadcasting),” copyright 1972, he states, “By January, 1922, the Eugene Radio Club listed 18 members. 7JU (me) was one of them, and I’d had that license for nearly two years.”

Eugene’s Paul Hoppe was a broadcasting pioneer who helped build KGEH (later KORE), circa 1927.
