World Radio Day, 13 February

World Radio Day 2017 The aim of UNESCO devoting one day to Radio, is to enhance a mass media, simple and low cost, specifically suited to reach remote communities and vulnerable people.

The day should be also a good opportunity to think over and to value the media and the task performed in the development of society.

Radio amateurs, as a subcategory within the Radio and of a huge interactivity, have our own role and contribute to keep alive the technical knowledge of equipment and behavior of waves.

Several members of EURAO organized special activities around this day, this year with the motto: "Radio is you!".

In this way, you could hear on air the following SES: AO1WRD, AO2WRD, AO3WRD, AO4WRD, AO5WRD, AO6WRD, AO7WRD, AO8WRD and AO9WRD; from Friday 10 to Monday 13.

Also other ham stations from other countries celebrated this day. Maybe next year you will think it is a good idea to join this event, do you?
