"SCIENCE MILESTONES IN THE HISTORY OF RADIO" Award

Click here for italian version

This initiative has as its main objective the dissemination of knowledge, also historical - biographical, of the main scientists who have given a fundamental contribution to the discoveries and to the development of knowledge, both theoretical and technical - scientific, in the field of Physics , Electrology, Magnetism and Radiotechnics.
These pioneers have laid the cultural and scientific foundations and started the complex process of innovation that has subsequently made possible the development and the future realization of the "Miracle of Radio", at the level of complexity and perfection that has reached today.
The initiative aims to activate internationally, throughout the year 2018, twelve commemorative radio stations with special callsigns, which will alternate in turn throughout the year: each month is associated with a SPECIAL CALLSIGN, dedicated to a specific scientist.
