Guglielmo Marconi

via the RSGB: Marconi international amateur radio award

Marconi Was Here! is an international amateur radio award organised by ARI Fidenza Radio Club.

The main objective of the award is to commemorate historically some of the most important and significant Italian cities where Marconi performed scientific experiments in radio engineering, long distance communications, radio direction-finding and others; experiments that, in the following periods, revealed themselves to be crucial for technical and scientific advancement and the progress of wireless communications.

The award period lasts the whole of 2023.

Each month is dedicated to a specific Italian city connected to the story of Guglielmo Marconi and is paired to a different special callsign.

Further details, special callsigns and award rules can be found on the ARI Fidenza Radio Club website.
