Every year, the Cornish Amateur Radio Club sponsors this event celebrating the date of birth of Guglio Marconi, the wireless pioneer who experimented with and developed much of this new technology in the early 20th century. His experiments were conducted all over Europe and other continents, and many of the memorial stations active this day will be operating from the same locations in his honor.

As in previous years the event will run for a full 24 hours with contacts made on HF only counting towards the award. All modes of radio communication are accepted towards the award and are actively encouraged. Please note that VHF, UHF or contacts made with one of the current crop of Internet assisted modes, e.g. Echolink, will not count towards the award for IMD.
