27 January 1947: Communications - Hydra

Indeed, discussions between Special Communications and D Sigs in Canada continued into the new year. In this letter to the Deputy Chief of General Staff (B), Col. Wishart (D Sigs) sought a decision on the purchase of a new 100 kw transmitter to strengthen the HYDRA facility, as well as a decision on how costs for distributing SIGINT traffic within North America should be handled. Wishart also recommended a direct line between the Director of the Royal Canadian Corps of Signals and the Director of Special Communications in the U.K.
