Note that this is a preliminary list and subject to change.

Some locations are not yet confirmed and are also subject to the vagaries of radio propagation.

If the going is good at 22:00 we're likely to want to keep going, but if it's dead in the water at 19:00, we'll want to go home early.

Where a location is marked as QTH, the station will be operated from pre-registered stations.

The August Offensive at Gallipoli

In VK6 we'll commemorate those who lost their lives during the so-called August Offensive. A bloody attempt at breaking the stalemate at the Gallipoli Peninsula. Active from 0:00 UTC on August 6 until 23:59 UTC on August 11th, 2015, amateurs from across VK6 will operate the callsign VK100ANZAC across the state. The WA Amateur Radio News team will produce audio segments that will be broadcast during activation of the callsign to commemorate this battle. These audio files will also be available for download from this website.

#vk100anzac



The August Offensive was the last major attempt made by the Allied forces at Gallipoli to break the stalemate that had persisted since the landings on 25 April 1915. 

The plan involved a series of thrusts being made out of the ANZAC position to seize high points along the Sari Bair range, which dominated the Gallipoli Peninsula. These operations would be supported by several diversionary attacks along the existing ANZAC frontline.

The Offensive began with a diversionary attack at Lone Pine on the afternoon of 6 August 1915, which succeeded in taking a heavily defended complex of Turkish trenches but cost the lives of 2,000 men of the 1st Infantry Brigade.

The main attacks - directed at Chunuk Bair, Hill Q and Hill 971 - followed that night, but although the first two features were held for short periods of time, the attacks had failed by 10 August.
