Amateur Radio at IEEE AP-S/URSI 2020

Now in its sixth year of Amateur Radio activities, the Antennas and Propagation Society encourages Radio Amateurs to engage, now virtually, with other symposium enthusiasts. This special interest group continues to grow (Call signs for 105 symposium registrants have been entered into this year's registration system), and this year's special event will be an opportunity for radio amateurs and those interested in radio technology and radio communication to share an insider's virtual tour.

Wednesday, July 8, 12:00 - 13:00 EDT

The National Association for Amateur Radio, ARRL, brings you inside W1AW - The Hiram Percy Maxim Memorial Station, with Special Guest Joseph Carcia (NJ1Q), Station Manager for W1AW. A visit to W1AW is a treat for ham and non-ham alike - an opportunity to explore radio and the passion of radio amateurs in their pursuit of discovery, skill and service.
