W1TP Telegraph & Scientific Instrument Museums

Friday's snow in Birmingham was not sufficient to keep folks away from an excellent presentation by Bell Ringer #263 about the history and technology of the German Enigma cipher machine. A reference in Keith's presentation contains a video that reenacts the use of the machine during WWII. 

A visit to the W1TP home page reveals a treasure trove of information and photos of interest to collectors and historians. The focus is on telegraph equipment and scientific instruments and the Enigma. One of his web pages contains some nice photos from the 2009 Dayton Hamfest.
