GB2MOP is the call sign of “Internal Fire - Museum of Power", located at Tan-y-Groes,
near Cardigan in West Wales.
The Museum’s core collections chart the history of internal combustion engines, particularly
large diesels in Industry and transport. A new steam shed and boiler house is now
open. click here to go to main web-site for details of steaming days and other museum
This site illustrates the museum’s growing Maritime Radio collection comprising three
ship’s Radio Rooms covering the period from the 1950s to the 1990s, as well as an
extensive valve collection, Titanic feature and Sunderland flying boat wireless operator’s
position. It is well worth a visit for the Radio collection alone!
As with the engines we try to keep all the radio equipment operational, we are frequently
on the air using the museum’s own call sign: GB2MOP.
Where possible visiting amateurs are able to use the museum station.
Work is continuing to add more information to these pages, if you spot any errors or want to make comments, please let me know at: email@example.com
The decision has been taken not to open the museum for the rest of 2020. We don't
feel the risk to our volunteers and visitors is justified and the difficulty/cost
of implementing social distancing measures is also an issue.
Best wishes to all our supporters and see everybody next year.
