In 1901 Signor Guglielmo Marconi received the first transatlantic radio message at Signal Hill in St. John's. On 15 December, 1902, he sent the first West to East message from a new station at Table Head to Poldhu, Cornwall. The station was moved, in 1904, to Port Morien and linked by wireless with Clifden in Ireland. The Port Morien station was officially opened for public use on 17 October, 1907.

L'isola del Capo Bretone ha avuto un ruolo importantissimo nella storia del telegrafo senza fili. Guglielmo Marconi, avendo già dimostrato con i suoi precedenti esperimenti, ľimportanza della sua invenzione, fondò nel 1902, con l'appoggio

del governo canadese, una stazione permanente a Table Head. Nel mese di dicembre fu inaugurato un servizio radiotelegrafico transatlantico. Messaggi furono inviati da Marconi e dal governatore general Lord Minto, al re d'Inghilterra e al re d'Italia. Nel 1905, la stazione Marconi fu transferita a Port Morien.
