Ogni 18 aprile i radioamatori di tutto il mondo celebrano il World Amateur Radio Day.
Il 18 Aprile del 1925, veniva istituita a Parigi – per sostenere le attività radiantistiche – la IARU (International Amateur Radio Union). Nel 1927, in occasione della Conferenza Internazionale di Radiotelegrafia, grazie alla IARU, venivano assegnate ai radioamatori le bande HF ancora oggi riconosciute – 160, 80, 40, 20, e 10 metri.
Ogni 18 aprile, quindi, i radioamatori di tutto il mondo parteciano al World Amateur Radio Day, il giorno in cui gli associati IARU possono mostrare le loro capacità al pubblico e godere dell’amicizia globale che contraddistingue la nostra passione.
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.
