Summer 1927, Winfield Salisbury, Paul Engle and Arthur Collins about to leave on a 7,000 mile trip to several western states to conduct 40-20 meter radio propagation.
Arthur, 9CXX, was assigned a special call, 9ZZA, for the trip.
The project was championed by Dr. Taylor of the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington to help the Navy learn and become more proficient using short wave frequencies.
