April 18 Is ‘National Amateur Radio’ Day
Amateur Radio Union was formed in 1925 in Paris. They were explorers of the radio waves who actually discovered different parts of the radio spectrum. I love being in radio, and it had to start somewhere. It really did start with amateur radio.There are a few left. Reports say that there are 160 members of the actual Amateur Radio Union still around. In Africa, the Middle East, America and Europe. They may be political conspirators, conspiracy theorists or just people who love amateur radio, trying to make their mark.
No matter. Most of us in radio wouldn't know some of the things we do if it weren't for them.
