The Carndonagh Amateur Radio Club have been invited to Fort Dunree Military Museum where they will be operating from.
The intention of the event is to set up amateur radio special event stations at as many of the museums as possible throughout the whole of the world. Making contact with other Museums and the many radio hams worldwide. The choice of museum is also left very much up to the Radio Clubs involved, however aim is for the largest and/or most unusual site we can find. The museums taking part over the years have included ships, castles, air museums, Napoleonic forts, pumping stations, wireless museums, racing museums and many others. For the purposes of the event, the word ‘museum’ is loosely interpreted. There really is no shortage of venues in which such an event can be staged, no matter where in the world you might live.
