IMD is an international event, timed to celebrate Guglielmo Marconi's birthday, and is on the Saturday nearest April 25. This year it is
the 26th. Around the world there are more that 60 stations in locations with some link to Marconi. These are called "Award Stations".
The only example in Oceania is VK2IMD, located at Hornsby on the Upper North Shore of Sydney. This is close to Wahroonga, where Ernest Fisk
received the first official direct radio message from Britain. This message was sent by Marconi from near Caernarfon (then called Carnarvon) in NW Wales, on behalf of Australian PM Billy Hughes on 22 September, 1918.
IMD runs from 0000 to 2359 UTC on the Saturday, meaning midday on the 26th to midday on the 27th, NZ time. The event is restricted to MF and HF bands.
VK2IMD is operated by HADARC, the Hornsby and Districts Amateur Radio Club, Inc. Visitors are most welcome at HADARC meetings, and on the Club's VHF and HF nets.
