Above:  The radio Shack of the USS Oregon at a residence in a suburb of Portland, Oregon.  The radio shack was acquired by Mr. Carl Braun when the ship was being dismantled during World War II.  Mr. Braun was U.S. Navy radio operator on the Oregon when the ship was in service during World War I.

The radio shack was added to the USS Oregon shortly before the start of World War I.  Radio communications was a new technology to ships back then, and extensive  modifications were made to the USS Oregon to install the radio equipment.
