USSR HAM-Radio CallBook in 1926

I just found a very interesting paper - a complete list of all transmitting amateur radio stations in 1926 in the USSR, club stations, as well as personal ones. It is remarkable, that the frequencies and power levels of club stations are selected in such a way that ensures reliable traffic between distant regions and Moscow - the farther station from center, the higher its power and shorter its wavelength. And another note - individuals had managed to use different wavelengths, so it was not too easy to contact each other that times.
Scan of ORIGINAL CALLBOOK is under the following translation.

Due to p.18 instruction NKP&T (People's Commissariat of Posts and Telegraphs) for
private radio-stations, exploited due to order of SNK USSR 5/II-1926,
current document is for public information.

I think that finding such history is always moving - because it becomes a link into the lives past.

Just found your comment, Tomas. Yes, I confirm, it's a good point, but there is another, less important than that purpose thing - there is a some information about power, operating frequencies and equipment of early Soviet HAM radio stations.
For what? Don't know, maybe for reconstructions, QRP experiments, memorial stations - for any kind of historical HAM setups, which can be made in present days.
