NEWS ALERT NEWS ALERT

WORLD AMATEUR RADIO DAY

18th April, 2019


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.


Amateur  Radio experimenters were the first to discover that the short wave  spectrum — far from being a wasteland — could support worldwide  propagation. In the rush to use these shorter wavelengths, Amateur Radio  was “in grave danger of being pushed aside,” the IARU’s history has  noted. Amateur Radio pioneers met in Paris in 1925 and created the IARU  to support Amateur Radio worldwide.


Just two years later, at the  International Radiotelegraph Conference, Amateur Radio gained the  allocations still recognized today — 160, 80, 40, 20, and 10 meters.  Since  its founding, the IARU has worked tirelessly to defend and expand the  frequency allocations for Amateur Radio. Thanks to the support of  enlightened administrations in every part of the globe, radio amateurs  are now able to experiment and communicate in frequency bands  strategically located throughout the radio spectrum.  From the 25  countries that formed the IARU in 1925, the IARU has grown to include  160 member-societies in three regions. IARU Region 1 includes Europe,  Africa, the Middle East, and Northern Asia. Region 2 covers the  Americas, and Region 3 is comprised of Australia, New Zealand, the  Pacific island nations, and most of Asia. The International  Telecommunication Union (ITU) has recognized the IARU as representing  the interests of Amateur Radio.


Today, Amateur Radio is more popular than ever, with more than 3,000,000 licensed operators!


World  Amateur Radio Day is the day when IARU Member-Societies can show our  capabilities to the public and enjoy global friendship with other  Amateurs worldwide.


Groups should promote their WARD activity on social media by using the hash tag #WorldAmateurRadioDay on Twitter and Facebook.


April 18th 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.

How we can to celebrate this event


It started in 2015 when W2JLD just got his license and he did his first WARD event on the western reflector, while it was in its infancy, it never the less was a way to celebrate not only what APRIL 18TH means, but it was a way show what we do on amateur radio. Who would ever think that this would be a regular event on the western reflector and how much it has grown to become one of the flagship special events on the *WORLD* Conference server/IRLP 9251.


While 2019 marks our 5th annual event , it also shows how much we as a group of like minded individuals who have made this hobby what it is today.

Those that make this possible


As special event coordinator for the western reflector, I am proud to say that none of this could have been possible if not for all those involved in making this event a successful one every year.


First of all let me thank KENT JOHNSON of The Nevada Amateur Radio Repeaters Inc. (NARRI) in LAS VEGAS,NEVADA.


Also to the Net controllers who have taken time out of their day and evening to do this event. This year we have  4 new net controllers and 1 YL and  for the first time we will have a very newly licensed amateur radio operator who is 10 yrs old from South Wales, United Kingdom for a total of 12 net controllers.


As well as the system admins of the numerous ECHOLINK Conferences that will be connected.


At this time we will have 8 different conference and more than 100 repeaters and more than 100 links that will take part.


We will be using the logging program NETLOGGER.


By using NETLOGGER we will have the AIM for text chat and you can follow along as we get checkins.


Rich/KL4RCS will be my back up NETLOGGER admin

Amateur Radio Newsline Report 2160 for Friday, March 22nd, 2019

GLOBAL NET WILL MARK WORLD AMATEUR RADIO DAY


STEPHEN/ANCHOR: Organizers of a special VOIP net are getting ready to celebrate World Amateur Radio Day in April and all the connections ham radio has played a role in for so many decades. Dave Parks WB8ODF has been following that story.


DAVE: When the International Amateur Radio Union was created in Paris in 1925, no one could have envisioned the changes that would shape the hobby so many decades later, including Internet-linked modes such as EchoLink and IRLP. Using the special event call sign W2W, a 12-hour VOIP net will be among those "on the air" around the world marking the occasion, celebrating amateur radio and the friendships the hobby has built. This 12-hour net will begin taking check-ins on the 18th of April beginning at 1600 UTC. It is accessible via IRLP 9251, the World Conference Server. For the first time, check-ins will also be possible from Allstar Node 47620, the World Conference Hub.


John DeRycke W2JLD said a special World Amateur Radio Day 2019 QSL Card will be available for all participants who contact one of the 10 different net controllers during the event. John said that first timers are especially welcome. He said the event will be recorded for later transmission and will be available as well on Broadcastify through the Friends Conference Server. Technology may have changed since 1925-- but ham radio friendships endure.
