Record #133187:

The first years and messages across / Jan Hassel.

Title: The first years and messages across / Jan Hassel.
Author(s): Hassel, Jan.
Date: 1994.
Abstract: Describes progress in 80 years in Svalbard telecommunications as result of Norwegian Telecom director Heftye's persistance at time of independence. He persuaded cautious Storting to support network for trade, fishing, shipping and defence. Setting up station at Finneset (Green Harbour) next to whaling station Nimrod is described. Station's early journal is quoted for years 1911-1927, showing German activity, Svalbard Treaty, Polar expeditions, moves to Longyearbyen and then to Isfjord. Final parts cover WW2, reconstruction and move to satellites.
