Dick Bertel on WGCHWGCH
Directly under the mike in the "WGCH(FM) Management and Staff" pic is founder Walter Lemmon, also former head of the VOA and inventor of the "Audar," a precursor to radar that used bursts of audio through a directional PA horn which doubled as a mike. The time delay to the echo was displayed on a scope. We recovered the apparatus from the former CE's garage and later donated it to the Greenwich Historical Society at the Bush-Holley House, where it remains on display.
