EI-100-YXQ - Kerry Amateur Radio Group Special Callsign

Kerry Amateur Radio Group have announced that they will be QRV during the calendar year 2019, using the special event call EI-100-YXQ.

This call will commemorate the centenary of the first voice transmission across the Atlantic, in an East-West direction, from Ballybunion County Kerry to Louisbourg, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. The original call used from the former Marconi radio station in Ballybunion was YXQ.

On the anniversary date of 19th March 2019, KARG will be QRV from the site of the former Marconi radio station in Ballybunion, where an open day is planned to include a number of lectures and demonstrations.

KARG invites expressions of interest from any EI ops to air the call throughout 2019.
