Paul and the Princess
« on: August 31, 2007, 11:13:27 AM »
Here's a bit of radio history for you. 

This is a picture of our own NEAR-Fest Sergeant-at-Arms, W1PRA escorting Princepessa Elettra Marconi at the dedication of the Marconi memorial at Johnston RI. 

As many of you may know, Princess Elettra, the daughter of the Father of Radio himself, visited New England a few years ago visiting several sites of significance to the early days of radio to commemorates the 100th anniversary of Guglielmo Marconi's 1st wireless transmission across the Atlantic Ocean from Wellfleet, MA to Cornwall, England in 1903.

I thought you all might enjoy seeing this....
