ZL2ADN Collection Radio Shacks

In the first of this new series, amateur radio stations from around the world that have worked ZL2ADN Palmerston North, New Zealand, are featured.

ZL2ADN operator John Stuart began listening as a keen shortwave and medium wave listener in the early 1940’s and over the intervening years worked many countries, territories, contest and special event stations.

Most amateur radio operators are keen to see the gear used by their overseas contacts, and here are some of the radio shacks from where signals have reached ZL2ADN in the South Pacific. These contacts extend over many decades and some of the operators featured may now be silent keys.

We’re grateful to John Stuart ZL2ADN for his support of this project and for making his QSL collection available to document amateur radio contacts made within the Pacific and with the rest of the world. All images are © John Stuart Collection, Radio Heritage Foundation.

If you have amateur radio QSL cards, magazines or articles, photos or audio of amateur radio broadcasts heard in the Pacific since the 1920’s and want to make sure they’re kept safely for the future contact us and we’ll make sure they’re properly looked after.

Radio Heritage Foundation projects and activities connect radio, popular culture, history and heritage.

The charitable trust has been giving a voice to those involved in radio via our website since 2004 and will continue to do so.

We are inclusive of all visitors, regardless of race, color, sex, age, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity and/or expression, or disability and aim to connect people of all ages and cultures who love radio

We welcome a sense of wonder from the joy of listening via radio, and from memories retold for the enjoyment of all generations.

We prefer to use environmentally sustainable goods and services where we can afford to, and we provide free community access worldwide to our collections, published research, preservation and promotion activities in a completely paper-free environment.
