Antenna


The antenna that was used for both the transmitter and receiver.

The antenna was 120 foot (36.57m) in height and fed into the second floor of the tower which was the wireless room. This antenna was supplied by the Marconi Radio Company and appears to be sloping at 30 degrees from east to west and secured above the ground on the south side of Banba’s Tower as shown in the picture above.

The guy wires connected to the top of the mast show signs that they have insulators part way down.
