GB100ZZ Marconi Centre

Visited the Marconi Centre and was asked to add a few contacts to the log.

So was qrv on 17m for a bit... and 20m

Remember working plenty of US, EU and YV (Venezuela), A71AM (Qatar).

GB100ZZ is a special event station to remember all those radio operators on both sides that lost their lives in the first world war. The site was where the declaration of war for the first world war was sent on 14th August 1914.

Why ZZ...? ZZ was the call sign used by the  radio station at Poldhu to send messages, weather reports and messages to merchant ships.
