 World Amateur Radio Day iCal
Club: IARU Callsign: VK3OHM
State: National
Brief Description : World Amateur Radio Day

Full Details : Every April 18, radio amateurs worldwide take to the airwaves in celebration of World Amateur Radio Day. It was on that day in 1925 that the International Amateur Radio Union was formed in Paris.
Amateur Radio experimenters were the first to discover that the short wave spectrum ? far from being a wasteland ? could support worldwide propagation. In the rush to use these shorter wavelengths, Amateur Radio was ?in grave danger of being pushed aside,? the IARU?s history has noted. Amateur Radio pioneers met in Paris in 1925 and created the IARU to support Amateur Radio worldwide.
Just two years later, at the International Radiotelegraph Conference, Amateur Radio gained the allocations still recognized today ? 160, 80, 40, 20, and 10 meters. Since its founding, the IARU has worked tirelessly to defend and expand the frequency allocations for Amateur Radio. Thanks to the support of enlightened administrations in every part of the globe, radio amateurs are now able to experiment and communicate in frequency bands strategically located throughout the radio spectrum. From the 25 countries that formed the IARU in 1925, the IARU has grown to include 160 member-societies in three regions. IARU Region 1 includes Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and Northern Asia. Region 2 covers the Americas, and Region 3 is comprised of Australia, New Zealand, the Pacific island nations, and most of Asia. The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) has recognized the IARU as representing the interests of Amateur Radio.
Today, Amateur Radio is more popular than ever, with over 3,000,000 licensed operators!
World Amateur Radio Day is the day when IARU Member-Societies can show our capabilities to the public and enjoy global friendship with other Amateurs worldwide.

 AM and CW on Anzac dayiCal
Club: Tableland Radio Group Callsign: VK4MIK
State: National
Brief Description : AM and CW on Anzac Day

Full Details : The event is an Amateur Radio remembrance of those who served by using the old Radio Modes eg AM and CW.
In Queensland we use the AM dedicated frequency of 7.125 Mhz as many of the old rigs that are used are not frequency agile eg crystals are used.
The Townsville Amateur Radio Club acts as net control as its central location, in a WW2 Command bunker, give enhanced probability of Rxing more distant southern stations.
It has been running for many years.
Also it simply asks that the usual SSB nets simply switch to AM for the day and experience the old band.
The idea for the event come from a WW2 Coast watcher ex Sergeant Lionel Veale who used the portable QRP AM/CW transceiver ATR4A during several missions to various locations.
CW frequencies 7.018, 10.108 and 28.018 Mhz +/- .
