A.R.I. Fidenza (Parma – Italy), affiliated to the Italian Radioamateur Association (A.R.I.), organizes a techincal – cultural event, hold  at the seat of the Guglielmo Marconi Foundation (Villa Griffone – Pontecchio Marconi , Bologna – Italy)
on saturday, June 6.th and sunday, June 7.th, 2015.

Aim of this event is to highlight at an international level the historical value and meaning of the Yacht “Elettra”, the moving laboratory of the great Italian scientist, onboard of which a number of very important experiments on the radiocommunications were conducted.

Over the whole weekend,   the radioamateurs of the A.R.I. Fidenza group will operate a radio station located close to the relict keel of the yacht “Elettra”, kept at the Museum, and will ideally give new life to its “voice", allowing the radioamateurs overall in the world to get in contact with it.

The radio contacts will be operated using the special callsign

I I 4 M B

assigned specifically for this event by the Italian Communications Ministry.

The “Elettra back on air!” event, 2015 edition, is symbolically devoted to the Memory of

Maurizio Bigazzi

historycal and scientific consultant of the Guglielmo Marconi Foundation, who built up the collection lodged at the museum. 

Considering the exceptionality of the event, the Guglielmo Marconi Museum will be open at special visiting times, with guided tour, on SUNDAY June 7.th, approximately between 9,30 and 11,30 a.m.

The visit to the museum is specifically aimed to highlight the value of the hystorical researches conducted by Maurizio Bigazzi and to deepen the knowledge of the technical devices, instruments  and machines he developed and manufactured.

The project has obtained the prestigious sponsorship of the Guglielmo Marconi Foundation, which is known as promoter of research activities in the field of the telecommunications and undertakes initiatives aimed to disseminate the knowledge about the scientific activity conducted by the great Italian inventor.  

The event will take place in conjunction with international happening “Museum Ships Weekend Event”, organized by the american association “Battleship New Jersey Amateur Radio Station NJ2BB” affiliated to the ARRL (American Radio Relay League).
This event takes place every year during the first weekend of june, and has te goal to allow the Radio activation of hundreds of radioamateur stations located on board of museum battle ships.

Therefore, beside the radioamateur aspects of the event, its peculiarity is therefore that the concerned ships are someway ideally “resuscitated”, even if over a weekend only, allowing to highlight their historical, technological and human value and meaning.

The Radioamateurs over all the world will then be able to partecipate to the event by performing radio contacts with the Marconi Station “par excellence” :  ELETTRA, the moving laboratory of the great Italian scientist.


A special commemorative QSL card will be sent to any contacted Radioamateur Station.
