Telecomms Test Room stories
(Before it became the ATA)

Alan Bowman

Mike Jordan remembers:-

Setting up Carpenter Relays for the telegraph relays and detectors in the carrier equipment (2600c/s wasn't it?).

Alan Baukham tells us why the ADX computers were so named:-      

Fred and Freda were helpers of Bob Spenceley. Their names were given to the two ADX computers i.e. "Fred and Freda". Freda was into writing. I took her to Swains Lane when I was responsible for the PCM link there. Explaining to her the system and about locking to X or Y chains she came up with some pros (prose?) on my leaving do with all the info I had mentioned about Swains Lane.
