The Antarctic activation of VI0ANZAC that was postponed earlier this month will take place over the August 29-30 weekend fom Casey Base in the Australian Antarctic Territory, weather permitting. The VI0ANZAC activation will be part of the Wireless Institute of Australia ANZAC 100 program to mark the 100th anniversary of the famous World War I Battle at Gallipoli.
The Wireless Institute of Australia (WIA), the New Zealand Association of Radio Transmitters (NZART), and the Telsiz ve Radyo Amatörleri Cemiyeti (TRAC) in Turkey have joined forces to commemorate the centenary of the battle. Various special event stations, some with ANZAC suffixes, have been on the air during 2015.
WIA Vice President and ANZAC 100 Coordinator Fred Swanston, VK3DAC, has reported that brief tests of equipment and propagation were carried out recently in preparation for VI0ANZAC, and tests between Australia and Antarctica demonstrated that both the gear and propagation were working well. — Thanks to Wireless Institute of Australia
