Reason to celebrate: April 23, 2017 is National International Marconi Day.

International Marconi Day

Amateur radios, point-to-point contacts, high-frequency wave transfers, a mysterious yet attractive prize which are more connected stations… All this seems like the start of a cool yet adorable B-movie. The truth is, it's the essence of International Marconi Day, a 24-hour amateur radio event which remembers the job of Italian wireless communications pioneer Guglielmo Marconi. The big event happens yearly around the Saturday nearest to his birthday (April 25, 1874).To commemorate the Nobel laureate’s accomplishments, fans use HF radio to create direct point-to-point contact between stations, depending on a single technology Marconi developed and found in his time. Although nowadays the web may be the medium of preference for global communications, the concept behind International Marconi Day would be to keep your spirit of invention alive. The big event offers a thrilling throwback towards the days whenever a connected the world was but a bold dream and just a couple of exceptional people, for example Marconi, saw the worth inside it.
