World Amateur Radio Day is Sunday, April 18, 2021 | www.arrl.org/world-amateur-radio-day

Dear friends,

Join the celebration! 2021 World Amateur Radio Day is this Sunday, April 18. It was on this day in 1925 that the International Amateur Radio Union (IARU) was formed in Paris, France. ARRL Co-Founder Hiram Percy Maxim was its first president.

On World Amateur Radio Day, you’re invited to take to the airwaves to celebrate our global community of radio amateurs who explore, develop, and practice radio communications. The Hiram Percy Maxim Memorial Station, W1AW, will be on the air throughout WARD from ARRL’s headquarters in Connecticut.

The IARU has chosen “Amateur Radio: Home but Never Alone” as the theme for 2021 WARD. Let’s make a big splash to celebrate the opportunities for service, skill, and discovery that make being hams so much fun and rewarding! Spread the word among your radio clubs, Field Organization volunteers, community information outlets, and with local media. You’ll find lots of ideas for planning your participation of World Amateur Radio Day at www.arrl.org/world-amateur-radio-day. And remember that ARRL Field Day is just around the corner – June 26-27 – so use World Amateur Radio Day to promote interest in ham radio throughout your community before the next big event!
