An Explanation of Wireless Telegraphy By H. W. B. of the Cunard Line. RMS Etruria Passenger List, 11 June 1904.

This Steamer Is Fitted With Marconi's System of Wireless Telegraphy, An Explanation of Wireless Telegraphy By H. W. B. of the Cunard Line. RMS Etruria Passenger List, 11 June 1904. GGA Image ID # 1e6e6bde73


The more one studies wireless telegraphy, the better one understands nature's greatness and wonders. This study brings out very conclusively that, in all things, we are feeble imitators of this extraordinary nature.

To clarify what I mean by this similarity between wireless telegraphy and nature, I want to refer to what the sun is doing for us daily.

This light, which we are so accustomed to using, comes to us in vibrations or waves traveling at 186,000 miles per second. These waves sent out by the sun are known as ether waves and reach the earth in various lengths. Now to return to wireless telegraphy.

We find that we vibrate this same ether by generating an electric spark. It depends entirely on how much power this electric flash generates and how far these vibrations travel.

By using Mr. Marconi's incredible inventions, these waves can be harnessed, so to speak, and made to carry messages from one side of the world to the other.

We must remember very clearly that these ether waves are entirely different from sound waves. The former vibrates the air, and the latter the ether. So many people ask the question, "

How can you tell where to send a message so that it will reach a particular ship? " In answer to this, I would ask them to think of the effect of their voice when speaking; that anybody can hear them, all around, overhead, or underneath. Wireless telegraphy works in precisely the same manner; these ether vibrations travel in every direction, and in sending a message, say, from one ship to another, the operator first calls the ship he wants to talk with and awaits the reply before sending his message, and while these two ships are in communication no other ships in the radius will interfere, in precisely the same manner as when sending a message over the telegraph lines today the operator calls the station he wants. While all other operators along the line may read what is being sent, they only answer their calls.

Messages for Passengers on board this Steamer can be sent through the Marconi Stations at Rosslare or Crookhaven, addressed as follows:-


Passenger " ETRURIA,"

Care " Expanse,"
