Milestones: QCWA Turns 75

The Quarter Century Wireless Association is now three-quarters of a century old. QCWA was formed in December of 1947 with an initial membership of 34 hams. Membership is open to any currently-licensed amateur who was first licensed at least 25 years ago (gaps are permitted). 

The organization today provides mentorship to newer hams and runs a scholarship program that, according to the 75th anniversary edition of the QCWA Journal, has awarded nearly 600 scholarships totaling more than $750,000 since its establishment in 1977.   

Congratulations to QCWA from CQ!
