Marconi Clifden Celebrations

Thanks to N4OLN for this event notice --

On the 17th October 1907 Guglielmo Marconi sent his first commercial message from the then new station at Clifden, Ireland. This October in celebration of this historic event member of the Galway Radio Experimenters Club will be running a special event station from Saturday 13th to Wednesday 17th from Clifden. We have been issued the call sign EI100MFT for the event, MFT been the last call sign used on the original station. On the Wednesday we will be making a special linkup with the Marconi sister station in Glace Bay Nova Scotia. Part of this linkup will be an exchange of greetings between President Mary McAleese and Lieutenant Governor of Nova Scotia the Honourable Mayann E. Francis. We will also be honoured to have Princess Electra Marconi present as she is coming to Clifden for the festival along with an Exhibit from the Marconi Foundation in Bologna. The Galway Radio Experimenters Club will also be presenting a display of vintage equipment. More details on the festival can be
found at Visitors to the station are more than welcome and if you would like to participate this can also be arranged.
