Only 24 hours to work the special Y8 call signs

The ex-DDR (formerly the East Gemany) call-sign group from Y81A through Y89U, not used for 28 years has been issued especially for the WRTC Championship in Wittenberg, Germany. 

BUT .... These call signs will ONLY be on the air for the 24 hours of the WRTC / IARU HF contest - after that these call signs may never appear on the air again - or perhaps only in another 28 years?

Attendance Holds Steady at Hamvention® 2018

06/28/2018

Hamvention® marked another successful year in 2018, General Chair Ron Cramer, KD8ENJ, told ARRL this week. At 28,417 visitors, Hamvention recorded its third-largest attendance ever in its second year at its still-new location in Xenia, Ohio.

“We had a slight decline in attendance, but we think people were waiting to hear about the upgrades we made, and some upgrades did not happen until the very last moment,” Cramer allowed. “Many were worried about the mud.”
