This Thursday our speaker at the club will be Dr. Elizabeth Bruton, who will be speaking to us about the role played by Radio Amateurs during the First World War.

In early 2013, Liz completed her PhD at the University of Leeds with a thesis entitled “Beyond Marconi: the roles
of the Admiralty, the Post Office, and the Institution of Electrical Engineers in the invention and development of wireless communication up to 1908”. She is a SWL member of the Oxford and District Amateur Radio Club and a member of the RSGB.
