The Marconi Day sounds interesting - I know the area around
Tywyn, Fairbourne and Barmouth quite well, but I didn't realize there was
a Marconi connection. If you can, you should also post an announcement on
the RSGB Blacksheep reflector, which is where a lot of MF enthusiasts
You might also consider taking along a loop antenna for
reception, in case the kite antenna picks up too much
QRM/QRN. Isn't there a Broadcast station in the
73, Dave G3WCB IO91RM
