Register for Maritime Radio Day 2024

| February 16, 2024

Registration is now open for Maritime Radio Day 2024, which takes place annually on 14 and 15 April.

The event is held to commemorate the almost 100 years of wireless telegraphy service for seafarers which ended with the closure in the UK of Portishead Radio on 30 April 2000.

Commencing at 1200UTC on the 14 April 2024, and finishing at 2300UTC on the 15 April 2024, this event is a great opportunity to have a QSO with ex-marine radio officers and coast station professionals, who exchange details of their previous ships and coast stations.

The mode of operation is CW and all of the HF bands are used, including the WARC bands.

A certificate of participation will be issued to everyone who submits results.

Amateur licence holders are invited to register to take part as Friends of Maritime Radio Day.

Shortwave listeners may also submit logs.
