International Marconi Day 2016

This year’s Marconi Day will be on Saturday 27th April 2019.

Listen out for GB8MD on 27/04/19 from 00:00:00 to 23:59:59

TDARS will be travelling to our site on the West coast of Wales to Tywyn.  Here was the receive only station for the Marconi Company, the transmitting site being some miles to the North in Waunfawr just outside of Caernarfon.



Arriving after midday on Friday 24th April at Marconi Bungalows Field, LL36 9HN International Marconi Day takes place on Saturday 23rd April from 00:00utc until 23:59 UTC, before packing up and departing Sunday morning. It is now customary to stop off for breakfast in a café on the way home – so how about it?

Previous years have been great fun, and it is great to be the operator that everyone wants to speak with rather than trying to reach that operator. The camaraderie on site is light hearted and we try to make it interesting and informative for all who arrive, whether as an operator or a spectator you will be made welcome.

If you are staying over, then please we do not provide food / accommodation / facilities. Please arrange everything that you need including your chair. We can provide a patch of grass for you to put your tent up (no charge) if you like.

Any questions or queries please contact John M0JZH either at the club or via

Many thanks – look forward to seeing you there.
