    Thanks for that info. Very strong parallel to the Dean Koontz novel The Eyes of Darkness and today's COVID "stuff."

    Since that Judge "deferred" her decision to permit this salvage operation, not a single US media source has reported that.
    The only media source that mentions that deferral is Irish. Why is that?

    This was an interesting article

    There exists another Marconi 5kw spark gap transmitter identical to Titanic's set. This one is only 300ft down.
    I have no idea if any more 5kw sets were ever fitted in any other ships. Perhaps someone who has done more research than l can advise.
    But this one "is not" in international waters.

    And the identical set to Titanic's can be found here
