G'day Guys

I scanned this little publication at the National Library on Saturday & thought you may like to see also.

Two items of particular interest to Kiwis is the mention of:

(1) the temporary broadcasting station VLDN at Dunedin for the British & South Seas Exhibition licensed to NZ Radio Broadcasting Co

(2) a full list of all experimental licences in NZ for both transmitting & receiving. I'm not familiar with the NZ licensing regime at the time, but suspect many of the experimental receiving stations would have been your MW & SW DXers of the day.

Radio Heritage Foundation projects and activities connect radio, popular culture, history and heritage.

The charitable trust has been giving a voice to those involved in radio via our website since 2004 and will continue to do so.

We are inclusive of all visitors, regardless of race, color, sex, age, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity and/or expression, or disability and aim to connect people of all ages and cultures who love radio

We welcome a sense of wonder from the joy of listening via radio, and from memories retold for the enjoyment of all generations.

We prefer to use environmentally sustainable goods and services where we can afford to, and we provide free community access worldwide to our collections, published research, preservation and promotion activities in a completely paper-free environment.
