4M5M

Following a series of communications with the Secretary of this Marconi Group in Caracas, Venezuele I am pleased to confirm that their participation in Internationla Marconi Day has now been formalised and that the call sign is considered to be an official one where the award is concerned. The call will qualify for the 2015 award of course.

A a group they are representing Marconi’s activities in South America ans the South Atlantic.

The Group have been active every year since 2008 and have a super signal here in the UK. I talked with them at around 0120z on the 25th and arranged contact to formalise their joining the IMD family.

Welcome gentleman, I hope we will have many years association with you in the forthcoming events.

Norman G4USB

IY1MG – NOT an official IMD award station

I became aware of IY1MG’s operation during the event as they had a lovely signal here. I spoke to them and asked if they wished to be added to the official station list but received no answer. Following the even I contacted them via e=mail and received the following response:

“This is to inform you that the special callsign IY1MG has been assigned as a special call only for the 25th april 2015 in order to commemorate the anniversary of Guglielmo Marconi’s birth, but this station was not looking for any award; sorry for misunderstanding “

They have declined my invitation to join the IMD family.

Should your award claim include their call and just 14 more we will take this into account and, issue an award as if they had been official as this seems the most appropriate action we can take.

GB2GM operating IMD 2015

Poldhu operating IMD 2015, you will hear them acknowledging calls but somehow managing to ignore Gus M5GUS from Threemilestone. Well done on claiming the award again this year Gus you have a good few now.

G4USB working GB8IMD during IMD 2015

I always like to speak with as many of the official IMD stations as possible for a short while upon my return from GB4IMD in the early hours and, whilst my breakfast cooks and for a short time prior to y return to GB4IMD for the day. This year I contacted 19 award stations 4, between 0215 qnd 0230 the rest between 0830 and 1000. It is also good way to check if earning the award remains realistic.

I was using my TS950-SD and Carolina Windom CW160S.
