SAQ Alexanderson Alternator Transmission to Celebrate UN Day

An Alexanderson alternator transmission from Sweden’s Grimeton Radio Station, SAQ, will be part of UN Day festivities on 24th October 2018 at the World Heritage Site in Grimeton, Sweden.

We celebrate this great event in international relations by sending out a peace message to the world with the long-wave transmitter SAQ, and then a concert in the Irish folk spirit with the Varberg band Green Hill

A “Peace Party” at the site will feature Irish folk music from the Swedish band Green Hill. The music style honors the first transatlantic telegraph cable between Ireland and Newfoundland, which opened for telegram traffic in August 1866.

The SAQ CW transmission will be on 17.2 kHz and start at 16:30 UTC.

A live video stream of the transmission will be available -
