Here is a close-up of some of the equipment used in the radio control room of the U.S.S. Missouri. An operator would sit here for hours and could even eat a snack. In the center is the manual typewriter (some younger ones our tour never seen one before.. manual or electric and wondered where the screen was.  Next to it is a telegraph once assured it was not on I couldn’t resist tapping S.O.S or maybe I typed O.S.O. never sure which letter is the 3 dots and which is the 3 dashes. If memory serves me right the equipment in the back are largely amplifiers, antenna tuners, frequency counters and receivers.
