Wirelss Telegraphy in War

Nature volume 71, pages 307308 (26 January 1905) | Download Citation



A VERY interesting account of the working of the wireless telegraphic war correspondence of the Times during the early part of the Russo-Japanese war was given by Captain James at a meeting of the Society of Arts last week. This is the second occasion on which the Times has played a prominent and important part in the practical development of wireless telegraphy. The first was when, shortly after Mr. Marconi had established communication between America and England, a regular correspondence was started between the two countries by means of wireless telegraphy—a correspondence which was not, however, destined to last for very many days. Very soon after its inception something went wrong, and though since that time the Marconi Company has greatly developed its Transatlantic signalling and has effectively demonstrated its utility and convenience for communicating with liners, the shore to shore correspondence has not been renewed.
