Lee DeForest Operates
Station 6XC, San Francisco

Lee DeForest & Miss Mary White

Lee DeForest operated his station 6XC from the California Theater at Fourth and Market Streets in San Francisco from April 1920 to November 1921. He had previously operated this equipment at his broadcasting station in New York. Here he is shown demonstrating his 500-watt transmitter to Miss Mary White, one of the many entertainers who performed on the station.

In late 1921, the transmitter was moved to Oakland and 6XC became KZY, the Rock Ridge Station.
