“Point to Point – A History of International Radio Telecommunications”

Paul Hawkins.jpg

For a substantial part of the 20th century the global telephone and telegraph services were carried through the medium of long wave and short-wave radio. This talk tells the story about the development of international telecommunications via radio. The technology involved minimal automation and a high degree of human intervention to manage the limitations of long-distance radio. The relative efficiency of point-to-point radio and the cost of replacement satellite installations resulted in radio playing a part in international telecommunications up to the 1980’s, giving the author direct experience of this fascinating medium.

In April 1921, the Radio Corporation of America established its flagship marine radio station WCC in Chatham, Massachusetts, on Cape Cod.

Chatham Radio / WCC was the largest US coastal station, renowned among mariners around the world for most of the 20th century.

Join us this season as we celebrate the centennial of WCC.
