Re-opening of the radio museum in Kälarne
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.
