Here are a few stories from the OTVA collection to aid the Sesqui-Centenary celebrations on 22nd August 2022, the 150th anniversary of the connection between Adelaide and the outside world through Darwin and Java all the way to England.
This is our, and other telecommunications professionals heritage, hence there have been many stories over the years in our OTVA Veterans’ Newsletters about this and subsequent telecommunications ventures in Australia and the World. Our members continue the fine tradition of providing new and maintaining Communications systems today.
The OTVA Newsletter has run many stories over the years since 1972 about the Overland Telegraph Cable and the first Cable from Java to Darwin. Here are a few of the recent newsletters that have been following the Sesqui-Centenary anniversary.
There is more about the sesqui-centenary in the September 2022 Newsletter, but that’s not published as yet. Stay tuned…
As our members age, some may be having trouble reading the email newsletter on their computer or phone. Please listen to this computer generated version of our latest Newsletter and let us know your thoughts. We appreciate your comments.
Note: This issue the audio file is an audio mp4 file, which is much smaller than last quarter’s audio edition. It also uses a woman’s voice which may be more pleasant to listen to. The download is only 14 Mb this time. Please be patient (who ever wanted to wait for a computer!). I expect the file (which is an mp4 file) will open an audio player in a new browser window on your computer or phone. Playing this file will be about 70 minutes.
This is the third audio edition of our quarterly newsletter.
The trial of an audible version of the newsletter will finish with this issue, unless there is a strong response from members.
If you use the Audio Edition and would like to see it continued, please be sure to contact Peter or Greg in the usual way.
