Ninety-eight years ago, the ARRL-sponsored "Trans- atlantic Tests" succeeded in
bridging the Atlantic Ocean via amateur radio
for the first time. To commemorate the anniversary, ARRL headquar- ters station
W1AW will be on the air all day on Tuesday, December 11, the day of the first contact, with teams of guest
operators taking turns at the mic, key and keyboard. According to the ARRL, the
station will be on the air from 1300 to 2359 UTC, with the primary goal of
encouraging contacts between stations in the U.S.
and Europe, replicating the signal paths of
1921. Additional information is available at <https://tinyurl.com/yyfvk5xd>.
