From Jeff, N2LXM:

On Friday June 20th, 2014 at 18:45 Zulu radio communications was established on 7.150 Mhz Upper sideband between the Marconi Wireless, Wellfleet station site in Cape Cod Massachusetts and the Marconi Wireless, Belmar Receiving Station, Wall Township New Jersey. Amateur Radio Station KM1CC had as a guest operator Princess Elettra Marconi, who was touring the Wellfleet site. This Forty Meter contact had been scheduled in advance to allow two former Marconi Wireless sites to make contact with Princess Marconi. Princess Marconi is in the United States touring sites which were owned and operated by her father, Guglielmo Marconi, and his wireless company.

Using the call sign WA2GM of the Marconi Chapter 128, of the Quarter Century Wireless Association the Ocean – Monmouth Amateur Radio Club made the contact. OMARC President Jeff Harshman, N2LXM was the control operator, with Steve Rosen KB2PGA, Quarter Century Wireless Association representative in attendance also in attendance were OMARC Members Bob KA8SAF and Alan KB2RR as witnesses.
