Members of the Musick Point Radio Group [musickpointradio.org
] will mark the 20th anniversary of the closure of coast station Auckland Radio ZLD with a reunion of former staff and a day of on-air activity on all major HF bands, and on 630 metres.
ZL1ZLD will operate from the beautiful and historic Musick Memorial Radio Station, using SSB and CW from 2100 Saturday 28 Sept to 1100 Sunday 29 Sept UTC.
Our aim is to contact as many stations as possible in New Zealand and worldwide. All contacts with ZL1ZLD will be confirmed with a special event QSL card, plus you could qualify for a Musick Memorial Radio Station pennant.
We will call CQ on 80, 40, 20, 15 and 10-metre bands, plus at the top of every hour we will transmit on 475 kHz in the 630-metre band using the mighty Dansk S 265-3F-4M transmitter (pictured) which was rescued from the demolition of Auckland Radio’s transmitter site in 1993. Don’t have a 630-metre transmitter and a few hectares for an antenna? No problem. We will listen for your response on 475 and on other frequencies as shown in the transmission schedule.
