Tesla’s Lab on the Air November 5

From Hamilton, KD0NFR:

Wardenclyffe, Nikola Tesla’s last laboratory will be on the air November 5th as special event station W3T! Wardenclyffe is located in Shoreham, NY on Long Island. W3T is part of a network of special event stations that are helping to raise awareness for the effort to purchase the laboratory and restore it into a science museum. To read more about the effort to restore Wardencyffe, please check out the Tesla Science Center website.

The other stations in the network are N3Y which will transmit via satellite and possibly HF from the New Yorker Hotel, Tesla’s last home in Manhattan, and YU0TESLA which will transmit on 20m as well as other HF bands. For the latest updates on what frequencies to catch the stations on and a sneak peek at the QSL cards and QTHs, go to the special event website.

If you’re in the Shoreham area on the 5th, please stop by the station! Also, be sure to check out the Radio Central Amateur (RCA) Radio Club. They will have the Marconi radio shack on the air a few miles away transmitting as a special event station commemorating the 90th anniversary of the opening of the RCA transmitting antenna farm in Rocky Point, NY. More details are available at the RCA website. Without the RCA club W3T would not be on the air. Their help has been invaluable!

If you have any questions, or you’d like to help out, please feel free to contact me at hcarter333@gmail.com.

  1. Thanks for posting the announcment! We just got news that the Yonkers PAL station mere feet away from where the first FM transmissions were developed by Ed Armstrong and sent by Carmen Runyon. I’ll provide more details as I get them!
