An Amateur Radio Special Event Taking Place on the Weekends of 18th - 19th and 25th - 26th June

The intention of the event is to set up amateur radio special event stations at as many of the museums as possible throughout the whole of the world. The choice of museum is also left very much up to you, however aim for the largest and/or most unusual site you can find. The museums taking part over the years have included ships, castles, air museums, Napoleonic forts, pumping stations, wireless museums, racing museums and many others. For the purposes of the event, the word 'museum' is loosely interpreted.

During the first IMW in 2002 over 80 museums from all over the world took part. The museums varied from tiny local village museums manned by a single lone operator, to some of the worlds most prestigious ones. These were accompanied by a great number of military museum sites, such as HMS Belfast in London, the Battleship New Jersey in the US, RAF museums as well as very many non-military types.

At least part of the intention for this event, is to present modern amateur radio to members of the public and to help us loose some of the stuffy anorak image. What better place to do this than in the very public and well visited areas of the many museums which can be found in most parts of the world?
