GB4WIE - Wakefield Calling

30.08.2015 to 30.08.2015

11am - 3pm

To mark the 150th Anniversary of Wakefield's Industrial Exhibition we will be broadcasting live to the globe from The Art House Project Space. Art House Studio Holders Nigel and Elaine Tooby with members of Denby Dale Amateur Radio Society have installed state-of-the-art equipment and will spend the day making contact with as many other Radio Amateurs in as many locations as possible. Contacts are expected to be made with the USA, much of Europe, the Middle-East and Far-East.

Members of the public will be able to speak, direct – no telephone lines, mobile phones or satellite links – to radio operators across the globe, as well as take in the educational displays and materials which will also be on show.

Join us for a fascinating event celebrating technology and innovation
