In order to facilitate wireless transmissions across the Pacific, the Marconi Company of America began construction of stations in California and Hawaii in 1913. The Marconi high power transmitting station was located near the tiny hamlet of Bolinas, California and the receiving station about 20 miles northeast of that near Marshall. Here we present documents and photos relating to those stations for your edification.
