The Amateur Radio "Remembrance Day Contest" for 2021 has an opening address, of 20 minutes.

The transmission of the opening address should be started at 02:39:59 UTC to end immediately before the 0300UTC start of the Contest.

This contest commemorates the Amateurs who died during World War II and is designed to encourage friendly participation and help improve the operating skills of participants. It is held on the weekend closest to the 15th August, the date on which hostilities ceased in the southwest Pacific area.

It is preceded by a short opening address by a Guest Speaker transmitted on various WIA frequencies during the few minutes prior to the contest. During this ceremony, a roll call of amateurs who paid the supreme sacrifice during WWII is read.

Here is the links to the opening address. Link
