Remembrance Day is uniquely Australian, created to remember and commemorate those who sacrificed lives, or their youth, in order that we can live in a free democracy.
Especially, of course, those holding amateur radio licences.
It was created as a competition between states so that everyone can be involved. The noise and activity is our tribute to the servicemen. It is a friendly contest with many just getting on to give out a few numbers and reconnect with old friends.
Remembrance day is the amateur radio equivalent of Anzac Day and as such should be the primary activity on the bands open within Australia on that special day making way only for any emergency traffic.
