Marconi Day 2011
Interview with Catherine Block, Secretary of the Dover Amateur Radio Club about their organisation and International Marconi Day which they were celebrating in Pencester Gardens, Dover with a radio event.
At a time when amateur radio is under threat from the Internet, there are no worries on the East Coast of Kent! Dover Radio Club has now run 23 Foundation courses. In the relatively short space of time since the Foundation Licence was introduced, Dover Radio Club has initiated 146 newcomers to the hobby, and their success rate is a remarkable 92%. Many of the newly qualified Foundationers are inspired to go on to the Intermediate course, and ultimately the Advanced.
Nearly a year ago, to coincide with Marconi’s birthday, International Marconi Day, the 100th anniversary of Wimereux’s township and the 100th anniversary of Marconi’s transmissions between Dover and Wimereux, it was decided to re-enact the historic transmissions. An ATV link-up was required on 10GHz, as it was believed that F to G had not been worked on 10GHz duplex ATV before. (Can anyone out there challenge this?) It also meant that dignitaries including Marconi’s daughter, Principessa Elletra Marconi, could see each other whilst passing their greetings messages.
