    EM100WJZ - Lviv

    EM100WJZ Special call to commemorate the 100-th anniversary of the first amateur radio activity from the city of Lviv.

    The first ever amateur radio QSO from the ancient city of Lwów was made by Polish engineer Jan Zembickii n 1924. He used the spark gap transmitter, detector radio receiver with coherer and the loop antenna.

    Zembicki has chosen the call sign LW3 (Lwów-3) as there were no frequency and call sign country allocations at that time.

    Radio communication experiments then attracted a large number of enthusiasts and in 1926 Jan Zembicki has founded the LKK - Lwowski Klub Krotkofalowcow, which became the sixth in the whole Europe.

    This special memorial station will be active from July 1 to December 31, 2024.
