Golden Globe Race 2018 and radio amateurs

Golden Globe Race 2018 GGR is a non-stop solo around the world yacht race that will celebrate its 50th anniversary next year. For this occasion the sailors aim to do things like in the old times, i.e., without modern technology or benefit of satellite based navigation aids.

That's the reason radio amateurs become necessary to keep in touch with skippers and provide them with weather reports. Hams from any country interested in being volunteers for this event, please contact our member association URC: terremer@urc.asso.fr

ARR in GAUDEAMUS 2017: "Pages in the History of the Radio" nuevo

GAUDEAMUS 2017 This was the motto of the exhibition our member association ARR presented in its booth of the last GAUDEAMUS International Book and Education Fair 2017, that took place between November 22-26, organized by Radio Romania.

Lots of visitors and curious of all ages, but also old friends, went there to see what's going on.

An excellent opportunity to show the public what amateur radio is and how fun it can be. See you next year!
