Historical Note

This service was established by the U.S. government as the Foreign Broadcast Monitoring Service, a unit within the Federal Communications Commission, in February 1941. It recorded, translated, analyzed, and reported to other agencies of the U.S. government on broadcasts of foreign origin. It set up listening posts at Silver Hill, Maryland; London; San Francisco; Portland, Oregon; Kingsville, Texas; San Juan, Puerto Rico; and other places to intercept broadcasts of foreign news, intelligence, or propaganda emanating from authorized stations and clandestine transmitters in belligerent, occupied, and neutral countries.
At the listening posts, translations of the intercepted broadcasts were made and immediately teletyped or cabled to Washington headquarters. Some broadcasts were also recorded on discs. At Washington, incoming wires and transcriptions were edited and the more significant parts, or the full texts, were teletyped to the government agencies that were waging war on the military, diplomatic, and propaganda fronts. Special interpretations and daily and weekly summaries were prepared at headquarters and distributed to appropriate government agencies and officials.
Through cooperative arrangements with the Office of War Information, the British Ministry of Information, and the British Broadcasting Corporation, editors of the service were assigned to overseas posts maintained by those agencies to select material valuable for transmission to Washington. Editors and monitors of the service acted as part of the Army Psychological Warfare Branch in North Africa when Allied troops were landed there in 1943.
On December 30, 1945, the service was transferred to the War Department, and in 1946 the functions of the service were transferred to the Central Intelligence Agency.
