We approach historical sites / tourist attractions and, with permission, we operate Amateur radio equipment in an attempt to make contacts throughout the world.
Once a contact is established and logged, we send participating stations advertising material for these facilities in the form of
"QSL" Cards. The card is basically a post card depicting the premises or location we have visited and many Ham Radio operators collect such cards to remind them of their operating achievements.
Operators from participating countries then arrange to visit those far reached historical sites and attempt an activation of their own or visit the locations with family or friends
whilst on holidays.
The setup of our events include the installation of a basic radio transmitter and accompanying antenna (usually nothing more than a long thin wire). Our equipment is type approved and our licensed operators maintain the safety of all equipment and any public visitors while at your premises.
Amateur Radio is a hobby for us and not a business, we promote your facility purely for fun and the total cost to you is the donation of space on your premises, a table, chair and access to the mains power supply to power our equipment that runs nothing more than your average Personal Computer.
We print our own "QSL Cards" (post cards) which are sent all around the world promoting your venue at zero cost to you.
Check out the links below to some of the locations our members have activated and promoted in the past:
