This website is about the preservation of marine radio equipment that is held in a museum in the fantastic old Napoleonic fort called FORT PERCH ROCK which is located in New Brighton, Wirral, U.K. The museum is housed in the circular right hand tower at this historic fort.  The museum includes both the marine MN wireless/radio museum and the MN Memory room museum. We describe in some detail how the two museums were created from almost bare shells to the lovely way they are presented today.  There are three typical Merchant Navy radio rooms on display in the radio room museum, all three are from different manufacturers and era’s in both the radio telegraphy and radio telephony field of marine communications. We also preserve the history of both the equipment and the associated books and journals one would normally find in a typical merchant ships radio room.  It is also about preserving the history of the MN ships and coastal stations Radio Officers and their duties and of their now sad demise as the era of the Radio Officer has sadly ended after only around 100 years or so since Guglielmo Marconi sent his first wireless signals across the Atlantic ocean which started the era of marine radio communications.
