The RAAF was formed on 31st March 1921, to mark this Centenary the Wireless Institute of Australia (WIA) will be celebrating with two call signs:
VI100AF 1st March 2021 to 29th May 2021 will be used by Radio Amateurs that are either current or veteran military personnel and some activities may be from military bases.
Stuart Birkin. VK8NSB will be organizing the event that will be aired by many Radio Amateurs across Australia as we celebrate this centenary with you. A team of 40+ operators across Australia will be operating over the next few months.
If you see a ”Not in Log” suggest you check in 3-4 days as logs are only updated every couple of days after each of the 46 operators completes their stint. The log is NOT live.
So… if you work the call today your QSO may NOT appear in the log for 3 or 4 days.
QSL Information: A commemorative 4-sided QSL will be printed for direct QSL requests.
QSL will show the operator call sign worked for each QSO.
