WFA 1934 Byrd Antarctic
There was no callsign listed on this card. Byrd used the callsign WFA in 1929.
The exploring expedition
organized by Richard E. Byrd in 1928 may be considered the first
of the mechanical age of exploration in Antarctica. The program
was the first of its kind to utilize the airplane, aerial camera,
snowmobile and massive communications resources.
Other Antarctic groups used radio communications before Byrd. However, Byrds use of communications equipment overshadowed that of the others as regular wireless communications were established with the outside world.
