National Communication Day 1995
To commemorate Thailand’s Coomunication Day in 1995, a stamp was issued on 4th August 1995.
The design illustrates linking parts of the world through the Optical Fibre Submarine Cable System. Also included in the design is the logo of National Communications Day.
The digital working optical fibre submarine cable is made of highly pure silicon glass fibre. The fibre, which ranges from 0.1 to 0.15 mm in diameter, serves as a wave guide for transmitting wave signals in digital mode with greater efficiency than previous systems.
The Communication Authority of Thailand has utilised both the optical fibre submarine cable system and the satellite communications system to efficiently link Thailand to the rest of the world.
Thank you Maria for this nice and interesting FDC.
