95 Years Ago on Tuesday  14th February 1922, a small group of young, gifted, charismatic - and perhaps slightly irreverent - Marconi employees turned on a medium wave transmitter in a 'long low hut' at Writtle, and began an experiment which is now regarded as the Birth of British Broadcasting. Led by the irrepressible Peter Eckersley, the 2MT team broadcast every Tuesday evening. What started as a station for 'calibration purposes' for the fast growing number of radio hams, transformed into an entertainment programme like none before.

95 Years Later, the historic launch of 2MT will be celebrated by a very Special Event Station GB952MT (GB95 Two Emma Toc) from the original hut (now at Sandford Mill, Chelmsford, UK),  operated by Chelmsford Amateur Radio Society - www.g0mwt.org.uk
