KGEI 50kW transmitter. This historic transmitter was built by GE in 1939 and stayed operational with upgrades until FEBC closed the station in 1995. The unit was donated to SIM, Inc. to use in its radio ministry in Liberia (ELWA), but was destroyed after repeated attacks by rebel forces in a civil war. FEBC retained the ID plate for historic reasons, which can be seen on the panel to the left of the door (reproduced as a digital image in #199). Early pre-FEBC views of the transmitter from 1939 onward can be found in this archive. During WWII the station broadcast the American point of view to Asia as an ostensibly private voice, since U.S. law forbade official broadcasting. KGEI was effective in this role, and was in fact the precursor of V.O.A.

The KGEI transmitter was built by GE specifically for the Golden Gate Exposition in San Francisco in 1939. As a shortwave transmitter it was a novelty for its time. It was originally operated under the amateur/experimental call sign W6XBE, changed to KGEI during the Exposition (see photos #203 and #204). Carlos U. Benedetti is announcing in Spanish in the control room. FEBC did not acquire KGEI until 1959.

Two copies of this certificate were presented by U.S. President John F. Kennedy to FEBC President Robert H. Bowman in a special ceremony at the White House (see #200, #201). At the time of the Cuban missile crisis, there were only three private shortwave stations in the United States. One, operating out of Red Lion, Pennsylvania, to Europe, had been habitually critical of U.S. policy. In an attempt to control the the information going out internationally, Kennedy decided to request the private stations to suspend their own broadcasts, and instead relay VOA. Jim Bowman recalls that while the KGEI station manager Carl Lawrence was talking to press secretary Pierre Salinger on the phone from the Oval Office, telephone repairmen were already at the front door of the station, ready to install the phone line from VOA, giving the phrase "voluntarily canceled" a less than perfectly literal meaning.

The KGEI 50kW transmitter, like many early transmitters, cooled its final tubes in water jackets. It required a massive water pumping system. Part of the system included a large copper tank under the transmitter where from where the water was drawn, after passing through a radiator in another part of the building. Most modern transmitters now use the vapor cooling method which only requires a radiator to recover steam as water and return it to the transmitter.

One of the final vacuum tubes for KGEI's 50kW transmitter. Note the water jacket and copper tubes that circulate water from the downstairs cooling system. These tubes cost around $1200 (probably around $5000 in 2005 dollars) each and were rated at about 3000 hours. However KGEI often got considerably more than 10,000 hours out them. There was also at the time a "cottage industry" in tube repair for this type due to their widespread use in radio.

A view of the KGEI antenna field looking toward the northwest. The curtain arrays were for broadcasts to Latin America on 126 degrees. The center of the signal would pass through Mexico City, Quito, and Buenos Aires. The reverse (306) would pass directly through Tokyo and on to Manila. The taller towers belong to local NBC station KNBR.

DYVS (Bacolod) serves a wide area in Negros Occidental, including its 14 "centrals," or sugar mills. At this particular mill, a radio pretuned to DYVS was installed in the workers' dormitory by its manager (see #241). The result of this and other evangelization efforts was that a large number of the 3000 workers became dedicated Christians. Their work ethic so radically improved that this mill repeatedly exceeded all the other mills in production by a wide margin.
