On February 21 and 22, 2016 the Hamilton Amateur Radio Club ("HAMARC") will be operating special event station W8Z to commemorate the 100-year anniversary of the February 22, 1916 Washington Birthday amateur radio message relay across the United States... the first of its kind. 

Articles about the 1916 Washington's Birthday amateur radio relay were published in the May 1916 Electrical Experimeter magazine and in the April 1916 QST magazine.

One of the twenty-seven primary receiving and sending stations for the 1916 Washington's Birthday message relay was Special Land Station 8ZU (1915-1919) located on North C Street in Hamilton, Ohio.  HAMARC will be operating the special event station from the original station building of amateur station 8ZU! 

Special event station W8Z will be on the air Sunday, February 21 from 12:00 PM noon local EST to 8:00 PM EST and Monday, February 22 from 12:00 PM noon local EST to 8:00 PM EST.  Operating bands and frequencies will be posted on the HAMARC website at www.hamarc.net and W8Z will be spotted on spotting nets.

A printable 2-page QSL certificate in Adobe pdf format will be e-mailed to contacts.
