Celebrating 100 Years Of Ham Radio

May 26, 2014

This month marks the centennial of the American Radio Relay League, the largest association of ham radio lobbyists in the United States, which is headquartered in Newington, Conn. That means it will be a special year for the hundreds who converge annually on W1AW, a small station there, known as “the mecca of ham radio,” to broadcast radio signals across the globe.
