The KTAB Operating Room
The KTAB transmitter was located in the steeple tower (fourth floor) of the Tenth Avenue Baptist Church. Chief Engineer R. M. Bitzer is seated at the audio control panel, while his assistant Erroll Peck monitors a receiver, listening for distress calls from sea. The Western Electric 1,000 watt transmitter is visible at the far left.
