EASTER TELEVISION FOR SNOWBOUND WEATHER OBSERVERS
Whiteface Mountain is about 100 miles north of Schenectady, where W2XB, the General Electric station was located. By March of 1940 GE was picking up RCA's broadcasts from New York City and rebroadcasting them. The equipment being installed on Mt. Whiteface would have been picking up programs relayed to Schenectady and rebroadcast by W2XB.
