SARL celebrates 95 years

| May 22, 2020

Last Wednesday, 20 May 2020, the South African Radio League celebrated its 95th anniversary.

It was formed on Wednesday, 20 May 1925, just a month after the world’s radio amateurs met in Paris to form the world body, the International Amateur Radio Union (IARU).

In 1947 the word “relay” was dropped from the name.

Their message is that amateur radio has withstood the test of time because it is based on three major guiding principles—communication between people, continuous technology development, and self-education and training.
