Book Description
This compilation of the memoirs of Oscar Hierlihy illustrates his integral part in the development of radio and later television in Newfoundland, Canada. Beginning with his childhood days growing up in Bay Roberts and learning to live with his permanent disability from polio, the author talks of building his first broadcast transmitter, working with Ayre & Sons, where he constructed the commercial radio station, VOAS, and later operating his own station, VONA. He later joined the staff of CJON where he remained as Director of Engineering until his retirement when he devoted several years to installing low power television repeaters in many towns throughout the island.
