The WIA affliated club roster for the special centenary callsign VK100WIA is already an outstanding success with 2,500 contacts already logged. The callsign is equally popular with VK and DX stations, all keen to get that callsign and ultimately the commemorative QSL card.

The Midland Amateur Radio Club (MARC)in Central Victoria on Monday 7 June logged QSO number 2,000 with Laurie Davidson VK7ZE at Spalford in Northern
Tasmania on the 80m band. Reports for the SSB contact exchanged were five by nine both ways. Laurie VK7ZE has also worked the WIA Centenary callsign on at least the 40m and 160m bands. MARC also delighted many CW operators during its three-day roster slot for the callsign with numerous contacts on that mode.

The South East Radio Group in Mt Gambier in association with its annual Queen's Birthday Weekend Australian Foxhunting Championships has been tallying up hundreds contacts with the special callsign. The first batch of VK100WIA QSL cards will be submitted to the QSL bureau
at the end of this month.
