In these years, there is much competition in spanish radio. There is also experimental technique and this is also a factor of social prestige and authority over radio amateurs. There is also a diversification of programming and finding new radio ways. So, Spain will be a pioneer in this technique. Barcelona is the city where the telephotography develops and improves. In this city there was a modern society that it needed modern radio, with many radio amateurs, and an advanced laboratory technician station, EAJ-1 Radio Barcelona.
