World Amateur Radio Day

14961889544_9e008a5799_mTomorrow (April 18) is World Amateur Radio Day (WARD). It was on April 18, 1925, that the International Amateur Radio Union (IARU) was founded in Paris. The primary purpose of World Amateur Radio Day is to highlight Amateur Radio and its benefits to countries and communities, especially for their contribution to disaster relief workers in areas with little to no communications.

If interested, there are a range of techniques to listen to Ham Radio for those who have radios as well as those who do not.
