The Radio Museum in Kälarne was re-opened Tuesday July 1. During the ceremony SI9AM was represented by SM3FJF/Jörgen and SM3HKN/Kennet. Earlier was the museum in a school building in Hammarstrand, but was closed for several years due to a water damaged. The search for new suitable place began and at least they found a new location in a old school in Kälarne.
At the re-opening SM3FJF/Jörgen, president of SI9AM handed flowers and a poster "Telecommunications history" with Morse Code to the museum's owner, radio enthusiast Sune Kvist. The poster "Telecommunications history" was placed in the window above the woman sitting with a telegraph key.
Radio enthusiasts met Radio Enthusiast
12 radio amateurs from SI9AM met the radio enthusiast Sune Kvist with XYL Karin, who welcomed everyone. With a great commitment Sune told how he began to collect radio receivers from 1910-20 and forward in time. Approximately 800-900 objects are now in Kälarne old school. Everything in the school are a journey through 100 years.
It was a very interesting day in which we remembered back how it was in the old days.
