"The Titanic and Technology of Early Radio"


Good overview of some early radio technology, like on the Titanic. I'm very surprised that it's radio ran off about 110V DC and up to 60 Amps. I knew some navy ships ran off 125VDC, but I'm not used to how much power a transmitter uses. Just one of the motors was 10HP.

The audio is not the greatest at times, but there's a slide show too.

IIRC the entire electrical system on Titanic was DC. It was built the early days of electricity, there were still a lot of proponents of DC around.
