A Landmark Date In Radio History
Following World War I, the newly-formed Radio Corporation of America (RCA) acquired the assets of the Marconi Wireless Telegraph Company of America, including its unfinished installations at Chatham and Marion, Massachusetts. RCA installed state-of-the-art equipment manufactured by U.S. industrial giant General Electric, and trans-Atlantic station WSO went on the air on May 17, 1920. Come explore our newest exhibit, “Chatham On The Air”.
HOURS and EVENTS
We regret that Chatham Marconi Maritime Center’s offices and Marconi-RCA Wireless Museum will be closed at least until late May, based upon the President’s directive of March 29 and the Governor’s directive of March 31.
The Chatham Marconi Maritime Center is closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation. The health and safety of our visitors, volunteers and staff are our top priority.
We will continue to evaluate the situation and update this website as needed. We look forward to seeing you in the future. Meanwhile, please browse our website and should you have any questions before you can visit us again, e-mail us at info@ChathamMarconi.org or call us at 508-945-8889.
