WASHINGTON - Early Radio Transmitter with Leo C. Young. In June 1930, Navy radio engineer Leo Clifford Young and associate engineer Lawrence Hyland began field-tests of high-frequency beams used to guide aircraft at Bolling Field (JBAB) just north of NRL. During calibration, aircraft flying overhead were noticeably influencing the signals being read by Young. Recognizing this as an anomaly he and Albert Hoyt Taylor witnessed while at the Naval Aircraft Radio Laboratory at Anacostia in 1922, Young was nonetheless impressed by the strength of the reflected signals coming from aircraft flying overhead. REF: 60834(H-43)
