Get on the Air for World Amateur Radio Day 2024, April 18-19!

April 18 marks the annual celebration of World Amateur Radio Day (WARD). This year’s theme is, “A Century of Connections: Celebrating 100 Years of Amateur Radio Innovation, Community, and Advocacy.” The global event runs from Thursday, April 18, 0000 UTC to Friday, April 19, 0000 UTC.

All radio amateurs are invited to get on the air in the spirit of goodwill and friendship with other amateurs and to demonstrate their skills to the public. This non-contest event is an opportunity to talk about the value of amateur radio with the public and fellow amateur colleagues. As the ARRL notes, it’s also a great opportunity to spread the word about local radio clubs and amateur radio in general to local media as a lead-up to ARRL Field Day, which will be held June 22-23. You can also promote your personal WARD activities on social media platforms like X and Facebook by using the hashtag #WorldAmateurRadioDay
