Jan. 7, 1910: Airplanes are being assembled at Dominguez Station for the Aviation Meet and a tent has been erected to serve as a hangar. Los Angeles radio enthusiasts have been sending bulletins along the coast and plan to erect an antenna above the grandstand: a “skyhook” 750 feet long and 60 feet in the air. Messages are being sent at 15 words per minute using the Continental rather than American Morse Code.
