Biographical entry Watson, N.
- Electrical engineer
N. Watson worked for the Australian Post Office in Queensland. In about the 1950s he did extensive studies of crosstalk on open wire routes and on attenuation versus frequency curves of the various transposition patterns in common use, making an important contribution to increasing capacity by use in some cases of higher frequency systems, a better understanding of the effect on performance at carrier frequencies of irregularities in construction and leading to minor changes in wire and pair spacing.
