7. Armed Forces Day Crossband Test Postponed

The annual Armed Forces Day crossband test, originally scheduled for this Saturday, May 9th has been postponed indefinitely.

Normally held on the Saturday preceding Armed Forces Day in order to encourage Hamvention attendees to participate, this event encourages amateurs operating in their assigned bands to contact military stations operating just outside of those bands.

QSL cards are provided for successful contacts. In addition, hams and shortwave listeners can receive a certificate for copying a message from the Secretary of Defense.

Watch the ARRL home page or other ham news sources for the rescheduled crossband test date.
