United States special event….

Members of the Marconi Cape Cod Radio Club (KM1CC) will be on the air between 1330 UTC, January 18th and 0200 UTC,- January 19th, to commemorate the 119th anniversary of Marconi sending the first transatlantic message from the USA to Europe (UK).

This message was sent from Marconi’s Wireless Station, South Wellfleet, MA, USA, the night of January 18, 1903, and received at his Poldhu Station, UK, station in the early hours of January 19th due to time zone differences. The historic Marconi Wireless Station site is part of Cape Cod National Seashore, the site is listed as a National Historic Landmark by the National Park Service. For more information, see:https://www.nps.gov/caco/learn/historyculture/marconi.htm

Due to Covid, regrettably the SSB operations for January 18th, 2022, are canceled. However, they still plan to have the CW ops. The CW operations will take place inside the park’s Coast Guard Station that sits to the south of the Wireless Station Site. Both locations are in rare grid FN51.

Suggested frequencies are (+/- 20 kHz): 7035, 10110, 14035, 18080, 21035 and 10m (no freq. provided). There will be NO FT4/FT8 or Digital modes.

QSL via LoTW is preferred; DX via the Bureau; and direct to N1NS.
