One of Marconi's original radio sites lies in the Point Reyes National Seashore about 35 miles across the Golden Gate Bridge to the north of the 2016 IMS show. This site served both trans-Pacific and ship to shore communications companies. Unlike their East Coast counterparts, these sites are located within National Park lands and were therefore not torn town.
In the days leading up to this year's IEEE IMS show in San Francisco, I'll be presenting some fun trivia facts about the San Francisco/Silicon Valley region that may be of interest to our visitors coming to the show. In each case, i'll try to keep some sort of wireless relevance to the post.
