BCARPSG will join other Pittsburgh area radio amateurs to commemorate the 100th anniversary of experimental amateur radio station 8ZZ. That amateur station eventually became KDKA Radio.
On November 2, 1920 experimental amateur radio station 8ZZ broadcast the Harding-Cox presidential election returns. To celebrate this milestone, amateur radio operators throughout the area will take to the airwaves during the entire month of November to commemorate this historic event using amateur radio call signs K3K, K3D, K3A, and W8XK, the latter being the call sign of KDKA’s shortwave sister station in the 1930’s.
