During my tenure from 1949 to 1980 at the RCA Space Center, the RCA Astro-Electronics Div., we had a very active ham club. Also had an early repeater with a callsign with WR prefix. It was also the time before the present form of HT, where the rx and tx units were separate, and available in kit form.

The company was very generous to the club, supplying the meeting place, the space for the repeater, and what's more, the company also had its art manager design our QSL cards, and even printed them for us--100 in each batch.

Anyway, thought you might like to see one of the cards, this one showing some of the spacecraft designed and built at the Space Center. The address on mine is when still working at RCA. I had the privilege of participating on all the spacecraft shown on the card. And for what it's worth, RCA had NO failures in any of the spacecraft projects we were involved with.
