TI4NRH, Latin America's first SWBC station.
Charles Schroeder's TI4NRH Chair - In 1928, Philadelphia DXer Charles Schroeder became the first North American DXer to log a Latin American SWBC station when he heard TI4NRH. He not only got a QSL for his reception, TI4NRH sent him a beautiful chair made out of Costa Rican tropical woods. The chair was sent in pieces with instructions for assembly. It arrived in Philadelphia in just 12 days according to the article in Radio News magazine. Mr. Schroeder passed away in 1956, but the chair is in the possession of his daughter, who sent these photos.
