The Tableland Radio Group with the Cardwell Bush Telegraph Museum in North Queensland will be putting on a display of old Morse code and old radio equipment on May 29 and 30. The location is the Historic Post Office, Telegraph Station, Old Shire Hall, Courthouse and Lock-up in Victoria Street, Cardwell.

More than over 70 Morse code keys, bugs, paddles, telegraph sounders and ex-military radios will be on display, with many visitors attending on both days, including school groups and RSL members. The Morse Key collection belongs to Mike Patterson VK4MIK and includes a variety from many countries and dating back to the 1880s, World War II and the Cold War era. Martin Ryan VK4FMJR will also have some of his extensive collection of military radios, some which played a vital role in war.

Admission is free, but donations to the Bush Telegraph Museum are very welcome.
