A special event station is an amateur station transmitting during an over-the-air celebration of an event having exceptional meaning to our amateur service community. Such special events include a wide variety of festivities such as conventions, festivals, dedications, anniversaries, and local happenings. During the event, the special event station conducts two-way radio exchanges with other amateur stations. These stations generally operate for a short time, and have special QSL cards to commemorate the event.
