International Programme for Handicapped Radio Amateurs

December 3 is the International Day of Persons with Disabilities which will be celebrated in several countries by special amateur radio call signs

The Kuwait Amateur Radio Society (KARS) will be using a special call sign 9K2WDD and the Liberia Radio Amateur Association (LRAA) will be using a special call sign 6Z2RL.

The Egyptian Radio Amateurs Society for Development (ERASD) will be using a special call sign SU0ERA. ERASD are planning a workshop with the Egyptian Scouts.

The Asocijacija Radioamatera Bosne I Hercegovine (ARABIH) will be using a special call sign E71AVW and they will be active on 14 MHz SSB from 12:00 until 20:00 UTC. The activity will be organised with a group of blind members of the Radio Club Tuzla. A special QSL card will be sent to all who establish a contact. The Media and many officials from local government will attend the event.

The Vereniging voor Experimenteel Radio Onderzoek in Nederland (VERON) will be using a special call sign PI4CGR (Commission Handicapped Amateur radio).

It is hoped that many radio amateurs will join this event.
