The logbook of North American Balbo's Flight

The marconists used the station notebook to record all the messages sent and received by their telegraph. They carefully recorded the day, the time, the devices from which messages were exchanged. To optimize the times they used the Q code and the CW abbreviations, that is, coded words.

Below are two examples of telegrams that were received by the marconist and recorded in the logbook, click to enlarge.

From the station logbook of the I-RECA seaplane, 1 Av. R.T Francesco Chiaramonte.
