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.
Last year we did International Marconi Day from Blyth Battery.
The World War II bunker allowed the club to transmit most of the day from the Northumberland Coastline.
After we found the remote location at the end of a car park we set up an aerial.
Inside some construction was in order.
Working with members of the Tyneside Amateur Radio Club we ran a small station for most of the day on VHF and HF frequencies.
The ANARC website has been redesigned and refreshed. I am playing with the content right now but soon all the old stuff will be back along with the new stuff.
