ZL100ANZAC to be on air

Commemorative callsign ZL100ANZAC soon takes to the Amateur Radio bands for the ANZAC Centenary, with a group of ZL operators registered on a roster. Operation starts on ANZAC Day at Midday New Zealand time (10am AEST) and will last one month.

The New Zealand Association of Amateur Transmitters (NZART) says each rostered operator determines the time, band and mode to operate - so potentially there can be simultaneous operation in different modes on the same band, or on different bands.

ZL100ANZAC is to have its own page on qrz.com soon after it begins operation. In a quirk of technology, the New Zealand Radio Spectrum Management SMART registration system does not have the capacity of include the full callsign it has issued, only able to fit in ZL100ANZA. But the NZART is assured that ZL100ANZAC has been issued. It joins eight ANZAC-suffixed callsigns in Australia, TC100 prefixed stations in Turkey and and the OP0PPY station in Belgium at a war memorial site.
