FCC Microwave License Data

Princeton was built around 1950 as an auxiliary (repeater) station on AT&T's first transcontinental microwave route, linking Tampico, IL to the east and Lowden, IA to the west. Before AT&T began using nearby geographic names to identify its microwave stations, Princeton was known as Chicago R6W, following a naming practice adapted from wire and cable repeater systems.

By April 1954, a radio "spur line" had been added, linking the station to the downtown Davenport, IA central office.
