AIRSHIP R 34 FLIGHTS AND WIRELESS COMMUNICATION

The R.A.F. station at Dundee exchanged signals at 1000 miles; the R 34 sent messages that were read by the Air Ministry at 1100 miles, by Wormwood Scrubbs at 1135 miles, and by Ballybunion at 1600 miles. In one case, when the airship was approaching America, a signal was sent to her from the Air Ministry through the Marconi station at Clifden, and a reply was received via St. John's, Glace Bay, Clifden, and Marconi House, and thence to the Air Ministry, all in twenty minutes.
