20150822 - VK100ANZAC in activation in VK6

Post date: Aug 22, 2015 6:02:29 AM

The VK6 Garden Island team are activating Garden Island off the coast of Perth to commemorate 100 years since The Great War. The WIA have granted the use of VK100ANZAC for the duration of the activation.

The Island is home to Fleet Base West, the Royal Australian Navy's home on the West coast. The island offers a unique location to operate amateur radio and has proven to offer very low QRM.

The team would like you to get involved. There are opportunities to get onto the Island during the activation in your own vehicle or grab a lift with one of the organisers. Two absolutely fantastic locations on the west of the island are available for use. These locations will offer brilliant HF and interesting 2m operations. Power, ground and other basic facilities will be provided on site. If you are elsewhere in Australia or the world you can still get involved by making contact during the activation.

Activation runs from Friday 25 Sep to Sunday 27 Sep 2015.
