Celebrating 100 years of Wireless between the United Kingdom and Australia.
September this year marks the 100th anniversary of the first wireless transmission between Australia and the United Kingdom. Messages were transmitted from the Marconi station at Waunfawr in North Wales on the 22nd September 1918 and were received almost instantaneously at "Lucania" the Wahroonga home of Ernest Fisk, the Managing Director of Amalgamated Wireless (Australasia) Limited (A.W.A.).
The Ku-ring-gai Historical Society is planning a huge celebration - the streets of Wahroonga are to be closed off, there will be Paul Fletcher with be officating on the day and there will even be a Town Crier!
Triple H and The Hornsby and Districts Amateur Radio club have been invited to be involved. There is even an Australian Post stamp being printed to celebrate this special day!
See the Wireless Institute of Australia article about the history and background - https://www.wia.org.au/newsevents/news/2018/20180630-1/index.php
Saturday 22nd September - set up at 10 am - Triple H will get the proceeds of the BBQ and as radio enthusiasts, we'll be involved with one of the most important days for radio in Australia in our local area.
Please contact Rick Dunlop, Station Manager about participating on the day.
