Centenary of transatlantic amateur signals

| November 26, 2021

December 2021 marks the centenary of the first amateur radio signals crossing the Atlantic.

Signals from the USA were received by Paul Godley, 2ZE, at a specially prepared receiving setup at Ardrossan in Scotland.

From 1 to 26 December 2021, all UK and Crown Dependency licensees may add the suffix /2ZE to their amateur call sign to mark the centenary.

A programme of celebratory events will take place throughout December 2021 on both sides of the Atlantic—more details will be included in next week’s GB2RS News.

Meanwhile, you can learn more on the story on the Transatlantic Test Centenary website.
