History

The station first signed on the air on Friday May 11, 1922. In April 1935 it was used as a homing beacon by Captain Ed Musick and Fred Noonan during their survey flights of the Pacific in a Pan American World Airways Sikorsky S-42. During World War II, Japanese invaders used the station's signal to lead them to Pearl Harbor.
