HISTORIC MARCONI IRISH TOUR ---> In 1898, Gugliemo Marconi received the first
commercial opportunity for  his newly invented  wireless telegraph  apparatus
and established a wireless link for shipping between Ballycastle and  Rathlin
Island. In 1907, Marconi's dream of  fixed point-to-point wireless  telegraph
stations linking Europe and North America became a reality. The stations were
located at Derrygimla near Clifden, and at Glace Bay, Nova Scotia.
To commemorate these significant events, Hal, W8HC will operate as  GI/W8HC/p
from Ballycastle on 4-5  August (he will  be also taking  part in the  annual
Marconi Festival at Ballycastle with the Marconi Radio Group's MN0MRG special
event station). On  6 August Hal  will go  and operate  from East  Lighthouse
(ARLS NTI-011) on Rathlin Island (EU-122).  On 9-10 August he will be  active
as EI/W8HC/p from the Derrygimla site, and possibly from nearby  Letterfrack,
site of an ancillary receive station built in 1912. Logs will be uploaded  to
LoTW and special QSLs from each  of these historic Marconi locations will  be
printed and sent via GlobalQSL (www.globalqsl.com). In addition, a  specially
designed certificate will  be issued to  those stations  making contact  with
both GI and EI operations from  either Ballycastle or Rathlin and  Derrygimla
or Letterfrack. In keeping with the historic connection, all QSOs from  these
locations will be CW only. [TNX W8HC]
