A workshop and toolkit for play with shortwave radio.
When we think of radio, we usually think of public broadcast and commercial stations – but the radio spectrum houses many different kinds of communications: military, aviation and marine, data modes and telegraphy, and contacts between amateur radio enthusiasts. 

Join Hannah at 3pm on Saturday 2nd May for a workshop exploring radio in an expanded sense, questioning the potential of this medium for human connection. This hour-long workshop is a beginners guide to the physics of radio, and will equip you with tools to be able to use online software-defined radio platforms, to hear voice, data and telegraphy transmissions from all over the world. No tech needed other than a computer with internet connection.
