REMINDER - Cambridge Rally & Marconi day this weekend

Post by MrWeetabix » 19 Apr 2018, 08:19

Just a quick one, its 'Marconi Day' on Saturday, so could be good to peel-your-lugs-back and listen out for some stations in pretty unique locations. Then on Sunday We have the Cambridge Rally which is only £2 entry. If you're local get out and support this rally. We'll miss them when they're gone! Come on, who doesn't need more PL plugs in their life?? :-)

INTERNATIONAL MARCONI DAY

International Marconi Day celebrates the huge part Guglielmo Marconi played in the invention of radio. Registered Stations MUST operate from a site which has a connection with Marconi i.e somewhere he operated from, lived, set up a station etc.

International Marconi Day (IMD) is a 24 hour amateur radio event that is held annually to celebrate the birth of Marconi on 25 April 1874. The event is usually held on the Saturday closest to Marconi’s birthday and in 2018 it will be held on 21st April.

Period of Operation on 21st April 2018, 0000 UTC to 2359 UTC

The purpose of the day is for amateur radio enthusiasts around the world to make contact with Historic Marconi Sites using communication techniques similar to those used by Marconi himself.

To register your official Marconi site station please email crac.imd@gmail.com or visit www.gb4imd.co.uk
