RSGB President radio interview

| February 3, 2017

On 2 February, RSGB President Nick Henwood, G3RWF was interviewed about amateur radio on BBC Radio Northampton.

Nick explained that amateur radio is not only alive and well, but flourishing among people of all ages.

It was a prelude to the documentary on Frank Wright, a schoolmaster at Bugbrooke school, who more than 100 years ago taught boys and girls to send and receive Morse messages.

This was at a time when rural children were expected to leave school barely literate.

Business houses, shipping companies and the military were seeking out young people from Bugbrooke to staff their wireless cabins and run their communications.

The documentary will be available on iPlayer after broadcasts on the 5th and 6th.

Listen to Nick, G3RWF at about 44 minutes into the recording—see
