Valentia Island celebration on 27 July 2017
The IET committee members in conjuctiion with local Island co-operation held a commemorative event to celebrate the operation of the Trans-Atlantic cable which first successfully operated on 27 July 1866. The signals were exchanged between the cable station on Valentia Island Ireland on the edge of the great Atlantic Ocean and the American Continent
cable station at Hearts Content Newfoundland Canada.

One more time at 14:30 this year the dit-dah sounds of Morse code eminated from this Historic building and a live contact and messages were again exchanged between Valentia and Hearts Content. A very appreciative live audience was present at both cable stations.
