  AM and CW on ANZAC Day
The traditional AM & CW event organized by Mike "Banjo" Patterson VK4MIK and the Tablelands Radio Group of Far North Queensland, will again take to the air for the 7th year. This is not a contest. It honours those modes used by service personnel in earlier wars -AM and CW. The event idea came from a telephone conversation between Mike "Banjo" Patterson VK4MIK and World War II Coastwatcher in Papua New Guinea, Lionel Veale.

The annual event involves ex-military sites and related museums. It includes the Gnarly Net on 3600kc AM/ 3599 CW with CW from 1930Z and AM from 2030Z and the Friendly Afternoon Net on 7115kc from 0600Z in Northern Queensland.

Ex HMAS Diamantina will be operating as VK4RAN from 0300 to 0700UTC on CW on 7020/7025kc and 14038/14052kc plus/minus. It was operational during World War II.

The Tableland Radio Group will be operating from Rocky Creek War Memorial Park Igloo near Atherton, with the Callsign VK4GHL.

The Tablelands Radio and Electronics Club hope to operate using AX4WAT from the TREC Clubrooms using a home brew AM transceiver.

The Amateurs from Ingham, in North Queensland, hope to be operating from the Herbert River RSL and will be operating on a range of frequencies with the callsign AX4MS.

More stations will be also operating and switching to the old modes during the day.

The Townsville Amateur Radio Club will be active on the callsign AX4WIT from the Club Rooms in Green Street,
which were part of the camouflage used to protect the RAAF WW2 Pacific Theatre Communications Centre
from enemy bombing. AX4WIT will be operational from 0001Z AM and CW on 7115kc
