Every April 18, radio amateurs worldwide take to the airwaves in celebration of World Amateur Radio Day. It was on this day in 1925 that the International Amateur Radio Union was formed in Paris.
Today, Amateur Radio is more popular than ever, with more than 3,000,000 licensed operators!
We hope you will join in the fun and education that is World Amateur Radio Day! The theme for 2020 is “Celebrating Amateur Radio’s Contribution to Society.”
