D-Day 75th Anniversary Ham Radio Event

With the 75th anniversary of D-Day set to fall in 2019, a Llandudno-based amateur radio club is set to hold an event commemorating the town's involvement in the Second World War.

With Llandudno littered with ex-military sites involved in the Second World War, founder of the North Wales Radio Society (NWRS), Tony Mottram MW6TMQ has developed a D-Day 75 year anniversary event on the Great Orme.

The event will see Mr Mottram and other members of the NWRS broadcast on the first week in June, talking about Llandudno's involvement in the Second World War.

Never before has something like this been done. There is a heck of a lot of military things in Llandudno and North Wales’ involvement in the war was just amazing.. This event is going to be incredible - we are going to be broadcasting all over the world and locally we will have everyone coming together for this special event.
