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