Radio hams commemorate historic message sent to Newfoundland
|SaltWire News Network reports on the commemoration by the Marconi Radio Club of Newfoundland of the 120th anniversary of the first reception of a transatlantic radio signal|
The News service says:
In a brief transmission across the Atlantic Ocean using a 150-watt wireless transmitter station, members of the Marconi Radio Club of Newfoundland (MRCN) on Sunday afternoon, Dec. 12, celebrated the 120th anniversary of Guglielmo Marconi’s reception of the first transatlantic message, at Cabot Tower on Dec. 12, 1901.
At the Johnson GEO Centre on Signal Hill, MRCN members and directors Joe Craig and Len Zedel, in a re-enactment of Marconi’s transatlantic experiment, spoke with club members from the MRCN’s sister club, the Poldhu Amateur Radio Club, in Cornwall, England, from where Marconi sent his transatlantic message 120 years ago.
Using a two-way high-frequency radio contact, Zedel and Craig also spoke with people from the Foundation Guglielmo Marconi in Italy; the Marconi Radio Club in Cape Cod in the U.S.; and the Sydney Amateur Radio Club, in Sydney, N.S.
