Title: NI6BB Recognizes V-J Day
Event Type: Special Events
Description: The Battleship Iowa Amateur Radio
Association will be on the air
from 1600 to 2400 UTC August 14,
2017 to recognize the day Japan
announced it's surrender.

Victory over Japan Day (also
known as Victory in the Pacific
Day, V-J Day, or V-P Day) is the
day on which the Empire of Japan
surrendered in World War II, in
effect ending the war. The term
has been applied to both of the
days on which the initial
announcement of Japan's surrender
was made to the afternoon of
August 15, 1945, in Japan, and,
because of time zone differences,
to August 14, 1945 (when it was
announced in the United States
and the rest of the Americas and
Eastern Pacific Islands) as
well as to September 2, 1945,
when the signing of the surrender
document occurred, officially
ending World War II.
