Contact between Japanese ham radio experience stations

Contact between Japanese ham radio experience stations

What is believed to be Japan’s first contact between two unlicensed people using amateur radio took place on October 11 between Experience Stations 8J1YAB/1 and 8J3YAA/3

A translated Tweet from the 7-CALL Amateur Radio Club @JS1YEY says:
8J1YAB / 1 – 8J3YAA / 3
Japan’s first communication between unqualified persons
“Today is my first amateur radio”
“me too”

The specially licensed experience stations aim to give the general public a chance to experience the fun of amateur radio.
