But what makes this one convention so special is it is a moment for an organization with thousands of members to celebrate its th anniversary.

Super nice employees. ARRL Headquarters is a definite must-see for amateur radio operators. Upon arriving I was immediately greeted and asked if I would like to operate the W1AW station I'm a licensed amateur radio operator. Time was somewhat limited because the W1AW code practice transmission was starting at PM so my tour guide suggested that I get on the air first, then take a tour after. Be sure to check the W1AW schedule before visiting if you really want to operate from the radio station there.
