via the RSGB: Sign /2ZE to mark Transatlantic Centenary

This month marks the centenary of the first amateur radio signals crossing the Atlantic.

Signals from the USA were received by Paul Godley, 2ZE, at a specially prepared receiving setup at Ardrossan in Scotland.

From 1 to 26 December 2021, all UK and Crown Dependency licensees may add the suffix /2ZE to their amateur call sign to mark the centenary.

See our Transatlantic Tests pages to learn more on the story.
