The first Amateur Radio transatlantic contact took place on March 28, 1921. This seminal event featured a two-way communication between Alfred J. Gross, 1MO, in St. John's Newfoundland and Alford G. McMichael, 2BC, in Clifden, County Galway, Ireland. This momentous achievement marked the first time that voice communication had been made between Europe and North America via Amateur Radio.
