Oceania Dx Contest 2013

VK4NM and VK4LAT are pushing the envelope to win a third straight Multi Single title in the Oceania Contest this weekend – The crew from St George certainly have the runs on the board and the low noise remote western Queensland location will be hot enough this weekend without amplifiers in the caravan..

Temperatures are expected in the 30s so a nice beer drinking climate. Continue reading

Remembrance Day Contest 2013 de VK7GN

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.

Lest we Forget

Remembrance Day Contest 2013

August 17th and 18th will soon be with us for this years RD contest. This year the RD falls on the same weekend as the International Lighthouse weekend. Unfortunately the RD cannot be moved. Lighthouse stations are welcome and encouraged to submit logs for the RD while having enjoyed both activities.

I have already received an email stating that a VK5 club will be doing both activities together and I praise them for doing so. Remember that the new start and finish times are 0300z or 1PM eastern states time which will let you have half a day free on both days of the weekend. Teams were very successful last year, so please notify me of your team members prior to the start of the contest at vk4sn at wia dot org dot au.
