It is difficult to imagine how those young Marconi engineers felt in the early 1920's working in the relatively new world of radio communications - a time of exploration, discovery & achievement. The world of radio & technology has moved on to new levels, but many of the basic principles remain the same as in those early days.
2MT came about after the radio 'hams' of the day petitioned for a regular experimental wireless service. 'Hams' - amateur radio operators - shared the same passion for radio exploration & experimentation, & whilst 2MT has long ago passed into history, amateur radio is still alive & thriving.
It would be a fitting tribute to the 2MT team if we raised further awareness of technology & amateur radio & thus shared their enthusiasm & discoveries with new generations.
Here's two introductory videos giving an insight into today's fascinating world of amateur radio.
