On April 18, 2012 we shall celebrate the World Amateur Radio Day on the 87th Anniversary of the founding of the International Amateur Radio Union, IARU.
This year the theme for the World Amateur Radio Day is “Amateur Radio Satellites: Celebrating 50 Years in Space” in remembrance of the launching of OSCAR 1 on December 12, 1961, and the launch of OSCAR 2 on June 2, 1962.
Radio amateurs around the world will be on the air, and there will be many special event stations from IARU member societies. Join in the fun and friendship of our hobby – take to the air, or listen and see who you can hear, then maybe exchange QSL cards to mark the occasion.
