SPECIAL EVENT. To celebrate the world's first global contact between
Frank Bell, Z4AA, (A sheep farmer in Shag Valley, NZ) and Cecil Goyder,
G2SZ, (an 18 year old student at Mill Hill School in London), on October
18th, 1924, look for radio amateurs in the UK and New Zealand to activate
a number of special event stations. Some of the stations mentioned are:
GB2NZ - Between September 20th and October 18th; from a number of UK
locations and all bands between 160-10m. See QRZ.com.
2SZ - (*) Between October 11-18th; from Mill Hill School. The UK
spectrum regulator Ofom has agreed to issue this special
callsign for the anniversary week, and the radio waves can
be expected to be buzzing with stations seeking to contact
this rare callsign.
ZL4AA - Between October 11-18th; from Shag Valley in South Island, New
Zealand; at Mill Hill School and Shag Valley, amateurs will
recreate the first Goyder/Bell contact, hopefully on a wave-
length close to that used in 1924.
ZM90DX - Radio amateurs in New Zealand will continue to operate on
* Members of the Radio Society of Great Britain (RSGB), which is the
national society for amateur radio in the UK, will be providing the
station at Mill Hill School and much of the supporting documentation.
The School will be using the facility provided by the RSGB as an
interactive learning tool for the pupils.
SPECIAL EVENT. On August 31st it will be 40 years that the Dutch offshore
radio stations stopped their transmissions due to changes in legislation.
Many fans still mourn the loss of their beloved stations in 1974.
Arie, PD0ARI, from Giessenburg, The Netherlands, will be operating the
Special Event Station PD538RNI from August 28th until September 19th. He
will be active on 10m, 20m and 40 meters. All operations will be on Phone.
The "538" in the callsign stands for the last frequency the offshore radio
station Veronica used, and RNI stands for Radio Northsea International,
the name of the other station that had to stop 40 years ago. QSL via
PD0ARI, direct (w/SAE & 2 USDs) or by the Bureau.
Radio Northsea International with their psychedelically painted ship
the MEBO 2 seized to exist altogether after their offshore days ended.
In 1975 Radio Veronica (that targeted more on music with Dutch origins)
became a station in the Public Radio and TV system of the Netherlands,
and went commercial as soon as it was possible (1995). Today the name
Veronica is still affiliated with a commercial TV channel and Radio
Veronica is also still operating.
Arie explains his radio addiction: "My love for radio has started in
the early 70's while listening to Radio Veronica and Radio Northsea Inter-
national. Both stations transmitted from radio ships on the North Sea and
had millions of listeners. Radio Veronica transmitted on medium wave.
Radio Northsea International transmitted on medium wave, short wave and
FM. Every day good programs, fantastic DJ's, nice jingles and radio tunes!
The DJ's became sort of family; a part of your life! Radio Northsea Inter-
national on Shortwave triggered me to listen to SW (DX) radio stations and
a new hobby was born.... and it was a training for good radio ears too!"
In 1974 the Dutch government passed its anti-pirate legislation and
announced that the law was to come into effect on September 1st, 1974.
Both stations closed down in the evening of August the 31st 1974.
Arie continues: "August the 31st 1974: The day the music died! After
being a Shortwave Listener for a long time, I got my radio license and
started as a HAM operator. Every day I'm active on the bands: no day
without radio! All in all: My love for radio started by listening to
Radio Veronica and Radio Northsea International!"
