US Islands Awards Program

One-Day-Getaway

One-Day-Getaway (1DG)

Fans of portable ham radio operations are encouraged to grab their equipment and head for the water as part of the USI’s “One-Day Getaway.” This annual event takes place on the 2nd Saturday in May (May 13, 2017), from 0000 UTC through 2359 UTC (Friday evening to Saturday evening in the continental US).

One-Day Getaway is an on-air activity, not a contest: no scores are tallied and no prizes are awarded. Participation from all radio amateurs, regardless of experience level, is encouraged.
