The Amateur Radio Voice of the National WWI Museum and Memorial

The National WWI Museum and Memorial continues to partner with amateur radio to host special event station WW1USA from the Museum and Memorial.

2020 Operating Dates

  • May 9, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. – Remote Event
  • Oct. 31, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. – Remote Event

The operation dates of WW1USA often coincide with other events held at the Museum and Memorial highlighting lessons from the first worldwide war. The public is invited to share the experience by remotely participating in May and October. You can email ww1usa@theworldwar.org to answer questions about the station and amateur radio. Museum and Memorial volunteer, Charles Van Way, cvanway@kc.rr.com, can answer historical questions and provide information about the Museum and Memorial. More information is available at qrz.com/db/WW1USA.

QSL with WW1USA will be available by mail with SASE or other postage provided or via eQSL. After these special program offerings, information will be provided to request a special emailed certificate commemorating your contact with WW1USA.

All Amateur Radio operators who present an operator license on either of the two dates will receive $5 admission to the Museum and Memorial for themselves and up to three guests. No other discounts apply.
