The MARCONI TRANSMITTER was installed at the Manchester airport - the first to be installed in a municipal airport in Britain. This wireless station was controlled and operated by the Air Ministry. It was capable of both telegraph and telephone communication with aircraft in flight or other aerodromes. It was designed to operate on wavelengths of 700 to 1550 metres.
