“CQ CQ Contest, this is VK1A, VK1A calling CQ contest…. That’s right, VK1-ALPHA.”
As recently reported, RASA met with the ACMA and discussed several topics. One topic that received positive feedback was the possibility of 2*1 Contest Callsigns. You can read more about the meeting here
Since that meeting, RASA has canvassed VK amateurs for feedback and ideas on how such a policy would be implemented equitably, given the rarity of these callsigns, especially in VK2 and VK3.
We’ve received great feedback to date.
To ensure full participation of the VK community, we have appointed a sub-committee to review the options and make a recommendation.
Stay tuned – we’ll update you as the committee finalises its recommendations.
If you have any suggestions for how 2*1 callsigns should be administered, please drop us an email – we want to receive as many ideas as possible: firstname.lastname@example.org
