The Marconi installation aboard Titanic demonstrated the epitome of technological advancement. Thanks to the installation of this state-of-the-art system, Titanic could communicate with other ships and have messages relayed to one side of the Atlantic or another when in mid-ocean. Passengers could enjoy the novelty and convenience of sending messages, which was equivalent to sending an electronic postcard. While these rooms will be recreated aboard Titanic II, they will be done so purely for historic significance and will not be functional.
The Marconi Room is actually a set of three rooms. In the centre is the operating room containing the workstation, receiving and transmitting equipment and keys. On one side was the operators’ cabin and on the other was a ‘silent room’. Located here was the rotating spark disk with produced a loud noise and as a result the room was insulated and made soundproof.
