Control and Operation of Cable Telegraphy

    Article metrics


    THE success of short-wave radio telegraph ‘links‘ during recent years is well known to have led to the merging of the most important of the cable and radio companies. In addition, the rapid strides made in radio telegraphy and in international telephony have produced the impression that submarine cable telegraphy is now of little value. In a paper read to the Institution of Electrical Engineers on Jan. 7 by H. Kingsbury and R. A. Goodman on cable telegraphy, it is stated that there are no signs of the supersession of transoceanic cable telegraphy by radio, due to economic or other reasons. The growth of cable communications between the countries of Europe and the rest of the world is both steady and satisfactory.
