Jan 2014 - Awarua Radio Centenary

On 18 January 2014 the Awarua Communications Museum hosted a visit by attendees of the centenary of the establishment of VLB/ZLB Awarua Radio.

The attendees drove around the buildings of Awarua Radio (which now have private tenants), were invited into the Unwin HF Radar Array facilities and the Venture Southland Satellite Tracking Station before visiting Awarua Communications Museum. At the Museum they enjoyed an introductory movie and a cup of tea before exploring the the items on display at the Museum.
