The ACMA Amateur Radio Update recently announced a Survey on 2×1 call sign allocation

The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) are aware of interest in the amateur community for the issue for 2×1 call signs for use in amateur radio contests.

The ACMA has discussed arrangements for 2×1 call signs with the Australian Maritime College (AMC).

The AMC will manage the allocation of the 2×1 contest call signs on behalf of the ACMA.

Amateurs will not be required to obtain a new licence or vary an existing licence to use these call signs.

The ACMA and the AMC are seeking the views of the amateur radio community on allocation arrangements for 2×1 call signs. Please complete the ACMA survey at this¬†Link, which closes on 31 August 2021.
