BBC News report transatlantic anniversary

The BBC report on the 95th anniversary of the first transatlantic shortwave
reception between Greenwich, Connecticut, and Scotland

The ARRL, Radio Society of Great Britain (RSGB), and the Radio Club of
America (RCA), partnered in sponsoring the activity. The Greenwich
Historical Society also participated.

The BBC say: *Len Paget* from the Radio Society of Great Britain (call
sign: GM0ONX) said: "The frequencies used for the transmission were thought
at the time to be useless for long distance communications and were given
to radio experimenters as they were thought to have little or no commercial

"The success of these experiments showed that trans-Atlantic transmissions
could be achieved using short wave frequencies with a power equivalent to
that used by your toaster in kitchen. "

He says the successful test back in 1921 proved that world-wide
communication could be achieved using short wave.
