Today is World Amateur Radio Day!

Today is World Amateur Radio Day (WARD), marking the 92nd anniversary of the International Amateur Radio Union (IARU). Radio amateurs around the world are getting on the air, “Celebrating Amateur Radio’s Contribution to Society” — the WARD theme. WARD commemorates the day in 1925 when Amateur Radio pioneers, including ARRL co-founder Hiram Percy Maxim, 1AW, met in Paris and created the IARU to support Amateur Radio worldwide.

The American Radio Relay League (ARRL) is the national association for amateur radio, connecting hams around the U.S. with news, information and resources.
