Text Messages from BEACON at the Art Marathon Festival

Here are some recorded text messages from BEACON at the Art Marathon Festival in St. John’s, NL on August 15th, 2014. We did not have a typewriter component in this version, but instead took record using pen and paper!

For those new to this site, these messages were texted to my cellphone during the Art Marathon Festival on August 15th, 2014, then transcribed by AMF volunteers on Signal Hill National Historic Site, then translated by Society of Newfoundland Radio Amateurs members, then received by light and HAM radio 1.5 km across St. John’s harbour where the message was translated by SONRA member Paul Burggraaf’s computer back into text. It was a load of fun, and such a pleasure to be up in St. John’s again.

Thanks again to everyone in St. John’s for participating, now you can enjoy reading all of the results from both St. John’s and Sydney.
