One of the things that I hadnt really appreciated until this visit was the immense size of the heart of the stations transmitter, the condenser house (see centre of photo above). A 1.8 microfarad capacitor, charged to in the region of 20,000 volts, comprising 1820 metal plates, each measuring 9m by 3.7m and spaced from each other with an air gap of 30cm, all housed within a building 105m by 22.5m as long as a football pitch and a third of its width.

Sorry, I am aware this is a very broad request and there may be nothing you can do but he would be my grandfather so any information would be very much appreciated.
When you order your ticket, please indicate in the box provided how you would like your tag to read. With regard to the name tags, there were a few problems with sending them to you but otherwise I was pleased with their reception. The default will be to print your name as it appears on the first line of your address label. This year, we will produce the name tags on A4 sheets which will be at the merchandise table so you can collect your label as you enter the hall.

can help you in your decisions.From the analysis of the statistics of the two challenging teams Marconi Stallions vs Sydney U21 and the championship Australia - New South Wales, let's deduce the following. The league and league statistics show how the league has behaved so far.It can be useful to understand the trends: there are leagues in which it scores more and others in which it scores less.
You will be asked to take your seats at around 12.45pm and, shortly after, the top table (including the President and Guest) take their places. There will also be an envelope containing a strip of raffle tickets for which we would request 1.00 someone will be around to collect this during the meal. On your table, for each person, there will be a commemorative coaster, menu, list of attendees and the papers for the AGM (more later).
Marconi Stallions Fixtures
Gli yacht del tempo erano costruiti con materiali pesanti, come i cutter oceanici, con prua di legnami massicci e poppe leggere. Inoltre si cap che l'armo a cutter ad albero singolo (in Italia noto come armo Marconi) era pi flessibile e adatto alle varie condizioni meteorologiche rispetto agli armi dei brigantini e degli schooner dell'epoca. Si scopr presto, tuttavia, che le chiglie e le strutture portanti erano inutilmente resistenti, e si cominci a costruire imbarcazioni da regata molto pi leggere. Infine, poich non era ancora stato introdotto il concetto del compenso, o handicap, e le imbarcazioni competevano in tempo reale, si tendeva a costruire yacht di generose dimensioni, per renderli pi veloci.
Denys died on the 9th January aged 91. The Service of Thanksgiving held on the first of February at St Georges Heybridge was attended by many of his Marconi colleagues.
Diane Carricks letter on page 4 concerning her father GE Lilley and the editorial note below it refer to the Marconi College team of instructors in Nigeria to train young Nigerians who would operate and maintain the multi-channel radio system that Marconi had installed linking the large interior through repeater stations in jungle and in the northern desert areas on the edge of the Sahara. Fred here describes the way of life for them in Nigeria at that time.
Pearson primarily recruited me for my UNIX knowledge. This period with them complemented my engineering knowledge gained with the Marconi companies, giving me a quite extensive knowledge of PCs and particularly networking. In addition I also helped administer the Checkpoint firewall and the telephone system for the building. This proves invaluable in sorting out my broadband problems and those of my family and friends! However they began to phase out their UNIX systems and go over to Microsoft NT servers instead. So I was trained in networking skills based on Cisco routers and switches.
Marconi became BAE Systems and he retired from them when he was 65. Alan began his love affair with ships, Morse code, etc as he watched the ships sailing out of the Tyne when growing up at Tynemouth, Northumberland. He moved to Great Baddow, Essex, after university to start working for Marconi at Great Baddow as an electrical engineer. He started learning Morse code in his early teens and took out his radio license call sign G3NOQ.
My final test with him was to make a spindle with a three start Acme thread at each end one end left handed and the other right. I think Mr Watts was a small man who instructed on centre lathes and was always amazed that he could work looking down at the job with a fag in his mouth. Then a suitable big knurled nut had to be made to fit each end.
Should you go back a further reflection
Questo tipo di regate molto popolare nei paesi anglosassoni ed la tipologia preferita di competizione tra club nautici universitari perch permette varie squadre di 6 atleti di partecipare insieme ad un evento. Come per il Match Race, la partecipazione agli eventi pi importanti avviene solo su invito. Spesso le universit pi prestigiose portano pi di una squadra a questi eventi.
Eventually however, we got the equipment installed and started flying. So we stooged around and just videoed anything vaguely interesting: this seemed to satisfy the Air Force and they eventually placed a substantial order with Basildon. This caused consternation amongst our hosts as they didnt do any catering on the base and they were in danger of not being able to provide the traditional Arab hospitality at lunchtime. By six oclock that evening sickness and diarrhoea had brought us down we later found out that the food had come from a dodgy roadside stall. The idea was to demonstrate how we could see things miles away etc, but we soon found that the heat haze put paid to all that. A man was despatched and he came back with some rather nice meat, salad and bread. A table was laid out in the middle of the hangar and we were invited to eat while all and sundry watched to refuse would have been an insult. By this time we had already lost nearly a week from our time schedule so we had to ask to work beyond the normal oneoclock finish to meet our timescales.
Like most of our neighbours, he had learned about radar by chance, in his case while becalmed for the war years off West Africa on a ship called HMS Aberdeen. Secrecy about earnings was always an obsession, although everyone was paid much the same. And when he had needed something else to do, he chose to watch the many curious ways that waves behave in the air above the sea, turning solid things into numbers. He had bought red-leather-bound knives for his mates back in the Yorkshire-Lincolnshire borderlands; he had sent postcards of Dakars six-domed cathedral to his strictly Methodist mother; he had never fired a hostile shot except at a basking shark. That was how he spent most of the rest of his life, in the south of England instead of the north because that was where the radars were made, quietly reasoning through his problems on his bench in the Marconi laboratory and in an armchair at home, spreading files marked Secret like a fishermans nets. He earned 340 per year, as my mother and I discovered when he died.
Plans are being made to celebrate this event. Another occasion of note this year is that of the 80th anniversary of the decision in 1936 to build the Research Laboratories at the Great Baddow site. There are also events later in the year commemorating the First World War being organised, including a showing of the film of the Battle of the Somme in 1916 with a live orchestra accompaniment.
