IARU Receives Gift of Domain

Andrew J. Wol­fram, KI7RYC, has donat­ed the domain to the Inter­na­tion­al Ama­teur Radio Union for non-prof­it edu­ca­tion­al use to pro­mote the ama­teur and ama­teur-satel­lite services.

In accept­ing the gift IARU Pres­i­dent Tim Ellam, VE6SH, said: “The domain offers a unique oppor­tu­ni­ty for which we are deeply grate­ful to Andrew. It is our inten­tion to devel­op a web­site that can serve as a focal point for any­one, any­where, who may be seek­ing infor­ma­tion on ama­teur radio, which is bet­ter known as ‘ham radio’ by the gen­er­al public.”

The IARU is the glob­al fed­er­a­tion of nation­al ama­teur radio orga­ni­za­tions with mem­ber-soci­eties in more than 160 coun­tries and sep­a­rate ter­ri­to­ries. Since its found­ing in 1925 the IARU has suc­cess­ful­ly defend­ed and expand­ed access to the radio spec­trum by licensed radio ama­teurs internationally.
