Wireless Heritage SIG

The Wireless Heritage Special Interest Group (SIG) has been established to develop existing contacts with museums and organisations with an interest in telecoms and wireless history. The objective is to organise events that reference past experience in a contemporary context.

The telecoms industry has a well-documented history and rich collection of iconic articles, the majority of which are in storage with intermittent public access. The collections include examples of materials and manufacturing innovation which are inspiring and informative with direct relevance to present decision making and industrial policy.

Prior to the formation of the Wireless Heritage SIG, Cambridge Wireless has organised a number of events with an industry relevant heritage theme including one and two day events at Duxford in association with the Pye Telecom Wireless Heritage Group, and the Cellular 25 event at the Science Museum in January 2010.

Cellular 25 helped raise funds for the new telecoms gallery, The Information Age at the Science Museum which opened in September 2014.

While fund raising is not a core objective of the Heritage SIG we will be looking to develop events that can produce a profit which can be invested to support curatorial and research activities within the sector.
