Traeger loved the smell of gum trees on the banks of bush creeks. He found a strange happiness in giving what he called 'a big surprise' to isolated families in the Never Never who were completely cut off from the rest of the world. He gave them the miracle pedal radio so they could call the flying doctor, and he kept on bringing the benefits of wireless to people of the bush all his life. Traeger was a revolutionary and didn't know it.
