CBC Web Cam

From the local CBC website...

Overlooking scenic (?) Duckworth Street towards Signal Hill, on which you can just pick out Cabot Tower (the little dark spotch) from which the first Trans-Atlantic radio signals were sent and received by Mister Marconi.

Historical fact!

Did you click on the link and check out the actual web cam on the CBC site? Huh? Didja? Just don't do it while it's dark out here. Very boring then.

The chainsaw factory is just off to the left outside the view of the web cam.

So, if the signals were sent and received how were they transatlantic exactly?

Sender: Beep
Receiver: Beep
Marconi: See it works!
Canada: Hurrah for Mr Marconi, you're our hero!!

How? It's all very complicated and involveds the new math. You don't wanna know. Just trust me on this.
