Copy of Marconi in Communications

Page history last edited by David Samways 6 years, 2 months ago





General note


It should be noted that communications equipment used in air-to-ground applications is included in the Marconi in Avionics Wiki.  People with knowledge of Marconi avionics are most welcome to contribute and should request to join by clicking here.



Extract from the 1952 Catalogue


The efficiency of post and telegraph services throughout the world pays tribute to the absolute reliability of Marconi communications equipment.  Some eighty or so countries outside the British Isles have installations which, though completed perhaps five, ten, fifteen or even twenty years ago, are still giving trouble-free operation.


From the early experiment in 1901 when Marconi first spanned the world, a steady and continues progress has been maintained in the design of new equipments which incorporate the latest electronic developments.  The famous 'beam' stations go on record as perhaps the outstanding advancement in world-wide communications, whilst present-day achievements extend the operational facilities even further.  The Marconi range of current products covers a very wide field and embraces all techniques now in common use.
