The International Amateur Radio Union (IARU) is a federation of national associations of certified radio amateurs, representing over 150 countries and separate territories around the world.

The three IARU Regions are organised to broadly mirror the structure of the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) and its related regional telecommunications organisations. The Regions comprise:
- IARU Region 1: Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Northern Asia
- IARU Region 2: The Americas
- IARU Region 3: Asia-Pacific

The IARU represents the interests of the Amateur Radio Service worldwide to relevant international organisations, promoting the interests of amateur radio and seeking to protect and enhance its spectrum privileges.

The 85th anniversary of establishment of the PZK and the 90th anniversary of the IARU

This is to publicise the jubilees mentioned in the title. The selection of the special event stations was based on the capability of intensive operation under an assigned call sign, and on assuming activation of club stations which train future radio amateurs, as well as of such stations already activated by young fully licensed radio amateurs.

This action is based on the assumption of operation on the air during the following period: 01.01.2015 - 30.04.2015, encompassing two dates referring to both jubilees, namely - the 24th February 2015 - the 85th anniversary of establishment of the PZK and the 18th April 2015 - the 90th anniversary of establishment of the IARU.

Have a lot of fun, see you!
