Wireless Telegraphy between France and England

    Article metrics


    MR. MARCONI is to be cordially congratulated upon the success which has attended his latest experiments in telegraphy without intervening wires. For several months he has been actively engaged in establishing communication by means of his apparatus between stations several miles apart. He has gradually increased the distance between the stations, and has now succeeded in exchanging messages across the Channel. The Times of yesterday prints the following message transmitted by wireless telegraphy from France, and the communication possesses particular interest on account of the fact that it is the first press message sent across the Channel by the wireless telegraph system.
