April 9, 1934: Baldy Mt. Lookout, which has been occupied by a fireman-lookout for a six-weeks period each the past two years, has been without telephone communication. In 1932 P Radio Set No. 73 was used. Schedules with SP 32 on North 20-Mile Peak Lookout and with SP 28 on Granite Mt. Lookout were maintained throughout this period. Four to eight schedules per day were established, the number depending upon burning conditions. Not one of these schedules was missed, and messages were transmitted and received 100 percent throughout this period. In 1933 this Lookout Fireman was furnished PF Set No. 22. This set was not equipped with a key and voice was used entirely. And during this season messages were received and transmitted 100 percent on schedule." (Forest Service Bulletin)
