World Amateur Radio Day is April 18th 2016

World Amateur Radio Day

World Amateur Radio Day (WARD) is observed every April 18. The date marks the founding of the International Amateur Radio Union (IARU) back in 1925.

Each year, radio amateurs everywhere will get on the air and celebrate Amateur Radio’s contribution to society.

“April 18 is the day for all of Amateur Radio to celebrate and tell the world about the science we can help teach, the community service we can provide, and the fun we have,” the IARU said in announcing World Amateur Radio Day 2016. “We hope you will join in the fun and education that is World Amateur Radio Day!”

Stone Mountain Amateur Radio Awareness Day and Preparedness Month, we will be taking amateur radio to the street, downtown, featuring Emergency Power

Amateur Radio Awareness Day activities typically focus on increasing public awareness. According to DHS, National Preparedness Month is aimed at encouraging Americans to prepare for emergencies and to raise public awareness about the importance of being prepared.

This Stone Mountain Amateur Radio Awareness Day, September 19, the Alford Memorial Radio Club, will sponsor a 5-hour Emergency Power Operating Event for stations operating off the grid. “It is not a contest,” “It is simply a demonstration of what we amateurs can do without having to rely on the, internet or commercial mains, and what we will do whenever the need arises.”

There is no set exchange; contacts may be casual, but operators are encouraged to share information on their emergency power sources in addition to the traditional signal report, name and location. GOTA station maybe up and running so encouraging comments for newbies is always helpful.

In Great Britain and Ireland there will be Special Event Stations to Commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the sinking of the RMS Lusitania. She sailed to New York on 1st May from Liverpool when she was torpedoed and went down. 123 US citizens lost their lives.

An amateur radio special event station will operate from the Lusitania home port of Liverpool with the call sign GB100MFA and I understand in the Republic of Ireland EI100MFA as the survivors were taken ashore in Queenstown.
