	Well Brian it seems that Western Electric is the culprit, in
1915s or 1920s. It would be impossible to speak directly with any of the
founders as I'm sure they are gone but I wonder if there are folks that
have a BIO on the individuals that worked on the project.

Brian comments:

"Hmmmm - I thought SSB was developed by the telephone companies or the
military back in the 1930s, rather than by
AM ham ops.

Maybe I was given wrong information."

SSB was devleoped by AT&T in the 20's for use on the Trans Atlantic
