Happy Birthday HAMS! Thank you Terry McCarty, WA5NTI - for this reminder!!!!.

Yesterday marked the the 100th Birthday Party for Amateur Radio.

We should be celebrating President Taft having signed into law The Radio Act of 1912 on August 13, 1912.

That Radio Act marked the beginning of the Licensed Amateur Radio Service as we know it, and it required officially assigned CALL SIGNS for continuous wave (CW) operation above 200 Meters in the United States.

Visit the HAM Radio setup at the Prince William County Fair, send someone a message!!!
