World Amateur Radio Day
A celebration of how radio has been serving people for over 100 years.
Date: April 18, 2021
Time : All Day
This year’s theme is “Amateur Radio: Home but Never Alone.”
Every year on April 18, Radio Amateurs worldwide take to the airwaves in celebration of Amateur Radio.
The theme of World Amateur Radio Day (WARD) is celebrating Amateur Radio’s Contribution to Society which is incredibly relevant given the isolation and need for communication as we enter a 2nd year living with the global pandemic.
As we have mentioned previously the increase in interest in amateur radio during the pandemic was significant with many amateurs supporting each other by creating nets or on line meet ups.
A humbling reminder that we are a global community that has united during a time of isolation to ensure we remain connected and available to assist those in need.
Take some time on Amateur Radio Day to explore the world of Amateur Radio and discover what new friends and communities exist all over the world.
A fantastic radio to use on World amateur radio day is the Xiegu G90 transceiver.
To celebrate World Amateur Radio Day, with every G90 purchase we will include a free CE-19 expansion interface worth $80. Use the Expansion interface to connect your G-90 transceiver to a PC, data terminal or modem for operation in digital modes.
Limited time offer only available this weekend till midnight Sunday the 19th April.
