The National Wildlife Refuge System, managed by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, spans our nation. For more than a century the
refuge system has offered conservation and quality recreation.
Amateur Radio operators are helping spread the word about the National Wildlife Refuge System by operating from refuges during National Wildlife Refuge Week.
Radio operators highlight refuge features, wildlife and geography when making contact with other stations across North America. Operators will make contact using voice, teletype and, at some stations, Morse code.
The Amateur Radio special event coincides with NWR Week in October.
The NWR Week combines your enjoyment of the outdoors, appreciation for wildlife, and portable Amateur Radio operation.
