US Islands Awards Program


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, 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.
