Welcome to the Marconi Radio Group Website



Guglielmo Marconi 1874 - 1937       


The Marconi Radio Group was setup in the town of Ballycastle, Co.Antrim in Northern Ireland  on 10th  April 2001 . It began with a small  number of radio amateurs, its founders being Kevin McAuley (MI0CRQ) and Paul Quinn (MI0CRR) two  local radio amateurs residing in the town . The group was formed to celebrate the early wireless  signals  made by Guglielmo Marconi  where  a historic link was made on July 6th 1898 when experimental transmissions were made between the east lighthouse on Rathlin Island and the ' White Lodge ' house situated at the harbour in Ballycastle. This link by Marconi,  pioneered developments that were taking place in wireless telegraphy. The amateur radio group  meets at the Ballycastle Museum in Castle Street, Ballycastle on the first Thursday of each month.
