Guglielmo Marconi was born on 25th April 1874. International Marconi Day is celebrated every year on the Saturday closest to his birthday. As is often the case CARS, was registered and operated as one of the 63 special 'IMD Award' stations.

IMD 2023
Compared to last year conditions and activity were a bit lower but still busy for HF for International Marconi Day on Saturday 22nd April 2023.

CARS club call GX0MWT was registered as an official award station and operated with the kind permission of BAE Systems at Great Baddow, formerly the Marconi Research Centre.

Operators: Paul G4PVM, Keith G3WGE and Murray G6JYB, supported Andy G1GKN, Steve M0LCF and Andy G0IBN.

Stations: Three were in use, two on HF and one on VHF/UHF


Unfortunately we didn't work 15 stations required for the IMD award. However, overall it was an enjoyable activity day and look foward to next years event.
