KGO Generator Room

The generator room of the General Electric station contained nine motor-generator sets. These supplied current for heating the filaments of the tubes, plate potential for the power amplifiers and the 600 meter commercial transmitter, bias potential for the amplifier and modulator tubes, and excitation for the various generators. These machines were all in duplicate, thus assuring a continuous program in the event of failure.
