Radio

Antrim received one of the first Service Gear Mark II sets and tested it with that at Vernon in September 1908. The encouraging result was reliable communication over 1000 miles by night and 500 by day.[9]

Alterations

In mid-1913 it was approved that these ships receive a Mark III Dumaresq, Pattern 760. Having been supplied with the Mark III variant, each was to surrender a Mark I instrument previously allotted. For some reason, her sisters are not so mentioned.[10]
