Every April 18, radio amateurs worldwide take to the airwaves in celebration of World Amateur Radio Day. It was on that day in 1925 that the International Amateur Radio Union was formed in Paris.
Today, Amateur Radio is more popular than ever, with over 3,000,000 licensed operators.
World Amateur Radio Day is the day when IARU Member-Societies can show their capabilities to the public and enjoy global friendship with other Amateurs worldwide.
April 18 is the day for all of Amateur Radio to celebrate and tell the world about the science we can help teach, the community service we can provide and the fun we have.
As a member of the IARU, Bangladesh Amateur Radio League (BARL) has also chalked out programmes to observe the day. As part of the observance, a seminar will be held at GDLN Center (18th Floor), University Building – 2, BRAC University, 66, Mohakhali, Dhaka - 1212 at 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm.

First Bangladeshi SDR SSB Receiver by Ratul - S21RA
A great news is waiting for all HAM radio operators in Bangladesh and that is Ratul - S21RA the EC member of BARL has successfully build a SDR SSB receiver for 40 meter band. It is really a break through, the SSB receiver is working excellent and it is actually a dream come true for us. Ratul - S21RA told us that he will make a SDR SSB transmitter soon and the cost will be very low. As all of you know a SSB transceiver is very expensive and very few of us has the ability to operate and buy a HF SSB transceiver. Ratul's new design will be a great help for us to have an HF SSB radio for each HAM in Bangladesh. We really do appreciate his excellent job and hope to see the next successfull SDR project from him.
