What in the world is this "Meme Appreciation Month"?
The archives say it started in Canada as a way to spread joy & cheer to all the good little hams on the RF spectrum.
Honestly it's a way for young hams to have some fun, use a cool callsign and do a neat activity together.
The shenanigans started 2022 with the first ever Meme Apprecation Month and iconic callsigns such as VB4LIGMA, VB3YEET, VC9CATGIRL, VC3RIKROLL, VC3DEEZ and many more.
The second event in 2023 birthed callsigns such as VC9FEMBOY, DZ2NUTS, PD33ZDOGE and DL0NGCAT.
This is the fourth installment already. Well. Kind of. Thats the joke.
What is a meme and why does it have to be appreciated?
Officially, according to a dictionary, a meme is "an image, video, piece of text, etc., typically humorous in nature, that is copied and spread rapidly by internet users, often with slight variations".
To make it short - a meme is something most young people know and find funny.
If this funny bit makes it into amateur radio and attracts the young folk - perfect, right?
