WARD - World Amateur Radio Day April 18th

April 18th is the 108th day of the year (109th in leap years). This day marks the founding day of International Amateur Radio Union (IARU), thus the official birthday since 1925 has been celebrated as World Amateur Radio Day.  

By all means World Amateur Radio Day remains an individual thing, there is absolutely no compulsion or fancy events to commemorate the day organized on a global or national scale. This being a special day though each HAM is encouraged to promote the hobby, increase awareness, get on air and spread the good word.

Amateur Radio has come a long way over the years. The first spark-gap devices served as transmitters for first three decades of the radio (1887 - 1916) and today we have moved on to digital signals, SDRs integration with computers has shown how HAM Radio remains in the forefront of evolving technology.
