Letter: Scattered relics of British electronic achievements

Sir: T C H Going is quite right when he says Britain needs a National Museum of Communications. There is already a very good Museum of Submarine Telegraphy at Porthcurno, and Marconi was at Poldhu, and BT has an Earth Station at Goonhilly - all this in Cornwall. Perhaps it would be sensible to locate the national museum in Penzance, so that visits could also be made to these other historic and contemporary sites of activity.
