The role of radio in rescuing the survivors of the airship Italia

Abstract

During WWI, rapid technical advances led to the development of relatively small and efficient short wave transmitters and receivers. By the mid-1920s, explorers of the polar regions were using such equipment to communicate with their home bases, and for direction finding. This was prior to the widespread use of radio for voice transmission, and hence all operators were skilled in the use of the International Morse code.
