The latest exhibit of the fortnight at the Government Museum in Egmore is an object that has carved a place for itself in the memories of countless persons and is, by itself, a chapter in the history of communication – The first radio transmitter of south India. Equipped with valves from the first generation of transistors, dial knobs and rheostats, the 200 watt transmitter – which was acquired by the museum in the 1950s – will be on display till December 1.
