Proclaimed in 2011 by the Member States of UNESCO, and adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 2012 as an International Day, February 13 became World Radio Day (WRD).
Radio is a low-cost medium specifically suited to reach remote communities and vulnerable people, offering a platform to intervene in the public debate, irrespective of people’s educational level.
It also plays a crucial role in emergency communication and disaster relief. Radio is uniquely positioned to bring communities together and foster positive dialogue for change.
With the process of globalization, some people went online.
However, true radio amateurs, for whom exactly the song of the Air, a lively voice or live music of the Morse code, are, so to speak, a balm for the soul. Those who ‘gets sick’ with this once will never quit his beloved hobby.
On International Radio Day 2020, we wish all HAMs and RF professionals to be healthy, to receive only the most positive emotions from that hobby or business, great results in Сontests, and successful hunting for rare DX entities.
