Hi!
A question I have is, how does everything in the Marconi Room, work? The purpose of each equipment? What is the purpose of the Silent Room?

I know some stuff, like the Panel with the handles, they cranked the power up when Titanic was losing power. But how does it work? Jack Phillips and Harold Bride, did they have shifts? Did Bride ever get to use it?

What's the name of the "Tappy thing" that they send out the signals with? How does that work?

What is the AC/DC (not the band ;) ) panel?

Wish Parks was here. I bet he'd engage this question with enthusiasm and blow my mind lol

thank you!
