FCC Technician Exam Question Of The Day (T1D02)

Q) On which of the following occasions may an FCC-licensed amateur station exchange messages with a U.S. military station?

A) During an Armed Forces Day Communications Test

NJ2X Notes:
The annual Armed Forces Day celebration features traditional military-to-amateur crossband communications SSB voice and Morse code tests. These tests give Amateur Radio operators and shortwave listeners an opportunity to demonstrate their individual technical skills and to receive recognition from the Secretary of Defense and/or the appropriate military radio station for their proven expertise. QSL cards are provided to those stations making contact with the military stations.
