International Marconi Day celebrates the huge part

Guglielmo Marconi played in the invention of radio.

People had been trying for years to establish

wireless telegraphy, but Marconi persevered to make

it marketable and successful. The radio operators on

board the RMS Titanic were employed by Marconi -

and using his equipment they were able to alert the

Carpathia, the ship which rescued around 700

survivors. The purpose of this day is for amateur

radio enthusiasts around the world to make contact

with historic Marconi wireless station sites using

communication techniques similar to those used by

Marconi himself. For more background, see http:

International Marconi Day (IMD) is a 24-hour

amateur radio event that is held annually to

celebrate the birth of Marconi on 25 April 1874. This

year IMD will celebrate its 28th year.
