From Arc to SPARK to KEYED CW to Voice - all in a days work !

 

Horsea Island Wireless Station of long ago.

 

Horsea Island is situated in Portsmouth Harbour.  It has had a long career with the Royal Navy, whether as a radio station, a fire fighting venue or a small arms gunnery range.


Much of the documentation is not dated but we know when and what radio transmitters were around at what time, so we can have a pretty good guess at the year[s] we are looking at.  In this case, our guess is 1920's to 1940's.
