Transatlantic Tests Centenary


The Dawn of Amateur Radio


Special Events by the Radio Society of Great Britain

The early 1920s saw the dawn of international amateur radio. A series of significant milestones led, over some five years, from no amateur transmission ever having been heard on another continent, to intercontinental two-way communications becoming commonplace.

The RSGB will commemorate these historic events by encouraging everyone to get on the air to make QSOs, with a focus on December 2021 and December 2022. Full details of how you can participate will be published via the Society’s communications channels over the coming weeks and months. 

There will be features and photos in RadCom but you can also read the fascinating story on the RSGB website:
