In two months: World Amateur Radio Day 2015: 90 years of IARU and 150 years of ITU
WORLD AMATEUR RADIO DAY APRIL 18TH
The theme of World Amateur Radio Day 2015 will be the International Telecommunications Union and the International Amateur Radio Union Celebrating 150 Years of Advancing the Telecommunication Art.
Each year on April 18th radio amateurs celebrate World Amateur Radio Day, which happens to be the date way back in 1925 when the International Amateur Radio Union was founded. As such World Amateur Radio Day activities and special events are an opportunity to spread the word about what radio amateurs are doing in the 21st century.
And as this is considered to be one of amateur radio's most important annual events, several IARU member societies and associated clubs are expected to sponsor special event stations on the weekend to mark the occasion. (IARU) - from ARNewsline
