Otter Cliffs radio receiver, 1918

Contributed by National Archives at Boston


Charles A. Hoxie of General Electric Co., developed the high speed radio receiver that is shown at the Navy's Otter Cliffs Radio Station. Hoxie is credited with the photographic telegraph recorder for radio reception.

The Navy operated the radio receiver on Mount Desert Island from 1917 to 1933.

Hoxie's receiver was first tested at GE at Chatham, Massachusetts, then sent to Otter Cliffs radio station in 1918.
