An Amateur Television QSO Party will be held via the Melbourne-Geelong repeater VK3RTV and many other Australian & USA repeaters, hopefully European involvement with British Amateur Television Club streaming plus the use of Skype.

The concept, initiated by Peter Cossins VK3BFG for the Amateur Radio Victoria centenary in 2011 has been a growing annual event since. This year it will be on Friday the 20th from 8pm to Saturday the 31st of August 10am - the days and scheduling all in Australian Eastern Standard Time.

A contributor is expected to be Melbourne's Eastern and Mountain District Radio Club which acknowledges that its digital television project is funded through the WIA Club Grants Scheme.

Peter VK3BFG said Friday will be the time for Australia and possibly Europeans, the locals are then joined by those ATVers in the USA, with remote stations anywhere using Skype. The Digital ATV QSO Party transmissions are relatively short, often in a show-and-tell format to explain personal involvement in the visual medium.
