Maroni Day

Dear members

Being keen members of the Radio Society you will know that this coming Saturday is “International Marconi Day”, and the day we have our annual expedition to the Fort at the end of Brean Down to participate in the celebration of the birth of Guglielmo Marconi on the 25th April 1874.

We will be meeting by the Car Park/Cafe area at 10am and driving two or three vehicles to the Fort. Once set up we will be operational using the callsign GB0IMD, using mostly CW with maybe a splattering of SSB !

Look forward to seeing you on Saturday. Should you like a lift to the end and there’s room, be there at 10am, but it is a pleasant walk along the Down should you wish to come along later during the day.

Weston Mercury article 23rd February 2023.

THE Weston-super-Mare Radio Society has recently celebrated its 100th anniversary.

On January 3, 1923, the society held its inaugural meeting.

From that point on, members pledged to understand radio transmissions, brainstorming new technologies and uses of radio to benefit local people.

This is a sentiment that current members now carry with them into modern day. As stated on their website, the group undertakes challenges and competitions to test themselves and learn from one another.

This includes:

  • An 80 metre Club Championship Contest - CW - February 23.
  • National CW Field Day (NFD) - June 3.

The society meets every Monday evening at the Weston-super-Mare Social Club on Devonshire Road.

New members who have an interest in amateur radio are welcome to join.

You can drop in to any Monday evening meeting or, if you would prefer, you can email or call 07871034206 to register your interest in joining the society.
