ACMA have approved the issue of 2 x 1 contest callsigns with VJ, VK and VL prefixes.
These callsigns are available for Advanced class amateurs and club stations, for contest operation only. There is a limit of one callsign per licencee and one per club.
The 2 x 1 contest callsign structure was originally developed by a cross sector committee convened by RASA.
After a suggestion by AMC’s amateur radio advisor, ACMA has extended this structure to two new prefixes; VJ and VL.
This allows 2 x 1 callsigns to be available to many more amateurs.

AMC will advise when 2 x 1 callsigns are ready to be issued.
