The club is out and about this morning at Gateshead Central Library.
The Raspberry Pi Jam is an electronics event for the community and young people. We are there transmitting and talking about amateur radio.
The club had a day at Bowes Railway Museum. In 1826 it was at the height of technology as a steam powered rope wagonway. The Bowes Incline was at the top of a hill so in 2019 it’s a good place for radio too.

Amateur radio has its own day – 18th April 2018.
Before the web, the Internet and cellular communications there was wireless. Amateur radio allowed everyone in to worldwide communication. Today wireless is still important with wireless home routers, wireless data transfer and cell phones.
Amateur radio day celebrates the pioneers of radio.
