[IARU-R2-News 170] Special event stations WARD 2012
On April 18, 2012 we will celebrate the World Amateur Radio Day on the 87th Anniversary of the founding of the International Amateur Radio Union, IARU.
This year's theme for the World Amateur Radio Day is "Amateur Radio Satellites: Celebrating 50 Years in Space" in remembrance the launching of OSCAR 1 on December 12, 1961 and the launch of OSCAR 2 on June 2, 1962.
For this reason there will be several special event stations from IARU's Member Societies active on different dates during April: 6H6IARU, 3G73IARU and LZ1WARD.
If IARU’s Member Societies plan to have a special event station for this reason in April let us now so we can publish the details before the end of this month. Send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the information.
