MI Journals and Documentation

Page history last edited by Alan Hartley-Smith 5 years, 6 months ago






A substantial amount of material, mainly in hard copy form, is in store at Stevenage, plus instrument manuals, the Company photo archive and now the entire drawings microfiche and a substantial number of former instruments..  Considerable work has been going on behind the scenes to document this material by the Marconi Instruments Heritage Group whose part-time custodian is Nigel Adams.  Nigel is quite prepared to respond to ad-hoc enquires but he is an employee of Viavi Solutions so his time will be limited.  He can be contacted here.


The prime MI journals are listed below:



Marconi Wavelength


House magazine



Marconi Instruments Product Catalogues


These were large reference books typically of a few hundred pages



Marconi Instrumentation


Provided publicity and technical information to customers.  These were produced from 1947 to 1980 and a listing of these is shown here.


They were replaced by Marconi Contact.



Marconi Measuretest


Application notes for customers



Marconi Contact


Replacement for Marconi Instrumentation from 1980

From the text above...
the statement... 'he is an employee of Aeroflex', should now read...'he is an employee of Viavi Solutions'.
