A recent visit to outer Cape Cod gave the opportunity to follow up on ATA’s celebration of the Transatlantic Cable by visiting the site of Marconi’s wireless telegraph station in Wellfleet. It is actually more accurate to say the place nearest where it used to be since the land where buildings and towers used to sit has been nearly completely eroded. It’s fun to note that the second, 1897 Transatlantic Cable technology was edged out by wireless radio-wave transmissions in just over thirty years. I wonder where cellphones will be when their 30th anniversary arrives in about ten year? The Marconi Station is part of the National Seashore and is a beautiful place, espcially for biking!
