"I am not a speed reader. I am a speed understander."
- Isaac Asimov

Interplanetary Radiograph Station  
  Network of communication in the solar system.  

Nor is it necessary to again tell how sweating, heat-blistered engineers at every interplanetary radiograph station on three planets, stood by their generators until they were carried out unconscious, speeding up their machines, to the calls of set-faced operators for higher voltage, as they hurled radiogram after radiogram out into space, under a pressure that damaged receivers on boats as far away as Jupiter but which failed to excite the wornout and leaky induction coils of the Columbia's instruments.
From On The Martian Way, by Harry Gore Bishop.
Published by The Broadway Magazine in 1907
