Annotated copy of the radio message received from Geraldton

Annotated copy of the radio message received from Geraldton

This appears to be a transcription by a second person of part of the message taken by an Air Force signals clerk, to which some annotations have subsequently been added. It notes that the signal was heard by three women and two men at the Esplanade Hotel in Geraldton on an 'ordinary shortwave broadcast receiver'.

Although the paper has become brittle and some of the information at the bottom has been lost, it is possible to make out the words ‘Passed COIC [part of word or name missing] per secraphone’ and a date/time group that appears to end ‘5/12’.
