  journal={Transactions of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers},
A description is given of the cable laid by the Western Union Telegraph Company in 1928 between Newfoundland and the Azores. The plan of this cable is unique in that it consists of a combination of non-loaded and loaded cable, the latter being tapered throughout certain portions. By means of this arrangement it has been possible to secure duplex or two-way operation at a speed of 1,400 letters per minute in each direction. The general methods used in obtaining the duplex balance are described…
