    Special 80M News Bulletin on Sunday 20th January

    50 years ago on the 19th January, the first IRTS Radio News broadcast was made by Bill McIlwaine EI9F (SK), who read the news bulletin using AM.

    The same bulletin was broadcast on SSB later that day on 80M by Jim Bartlett EI2BB. The first broadcast on VHF was made by Shane McNamee EI2A (SK).

    To mark this important anniversary, Jim Bartlett EI2BB will read the 80M news on Sunday 20th January, at the usual 80M news time of 12:00 noon on 3.650 MHz.

    For this special broadcast Jim will read both the News bulletin from that day 50 years ago and also the current News bulletin.

    Jim will then take the call-in after the news to complete this special broadcast.
