ARLX005 Annual Armed Forces Day Cross-Band Test Set for May 7 – 8

The US Department of Defense will host this year’s Armed Forces Day
(AFD) Cross-Band Test, Friday and Saturday, May 7-8, in recognition
of Armed Forces Day on May 15. The event is open to all radio
amateurs. For more than 50 years, military and amateur stations have
taken part in this exercise, designed to include amateur radio and
government radio operators alike.

The AFD Cross-Band Test is a unique opportunity to test two-way
communications between military and amateur radio stations, as
authorized under FCC Part 97 rules. These tests provide
opportunities and challenges for radio operators to demonstrate
individual technical skills in a tightly controlled exercise in
which military stations will transmit on selected military
frequencies and will announce the specific amateur radio frequencies
being monitored.

The schedule of military/government stations taking part in the
Armed Forces Day Cross-Band Test and information on the AFD message
is available on the MARS website at,
