The next Wireless Heritage meeting is taking place at the Duxford Radio Society and will incorporate a fascinating insight into military communication, radar and navigation used during warfare, with live demonstrations of equipment restored by members of the Society.
The Duxford Radio Society (DRS) provides the function of the Radio Section at the Imperial War Museum Duxford, near Cambridge. DRS consists of a group of radio communications specialist volunteers who research, conserve, restore, display and operate historic military radio, radar and navigation equipment to support the Imperial War Museums Duxford operation.
The equipment on display covers examples of the following categories of military communication:
Radio communication in land warfare, airborne combat and naval warfare between 1914 and 2010
Our visit will consist of demonstrations and explanations of the various equipment DRS has conserved and restored, including:
Start time: 13:30
Finish time: approx 16:00
The Wireless Heritage SIG is championed by Stirling Essex of Espansivo, Steve Haseldine of Radio Communication Museum of Great Britain, Andy Sutton of EE, Geoff Varrall of RTT Online and Nigel Wall of Climate Associates.
We are extremely grateful to the Duxford Radio Society for hosting this event. Hopefully you can make this event before DRS move to winter hours! REGISTER INTEREST
