Saturday 22nd September, 1918 was the first transmission to Australia - the message was received on the cnr of Cleveland Street & Stuart ST, Wahroonga - the home of Sir Ernest Fisk . 100 years on There was a re-enactment - the Ku-ring-gai Historical Society, the Hornsby & District Amateur Radio Club, Triple H 100.1FM and a number of associations gathered at St Andrews church to celebrate the historical event. Fisk family members were there to be apart of the festivities as was Dick Smith.
Triple H ran an outside broadcast from 10am with the Show Us Your Motor team running their program in the St Andrews hall, then Pasquale did some interviews and the actual festivities of the morse code being played at 1.15pm signifying the 100 years of wireless in Australia. Triple H recorded the event and will be replaying on the 6th October.
Thanks to everyone involved on the day - it was a huge undertaking by Triple H - the outside Broadcast was headed up by Jason (Noddy) Velleley who did an amazing job!
The highlights of the day will be played in full on Saturday October 6 from 1.00pm.
