VK100WIQ Special Event Callsign

The special event callsign VK100WIQ will be issued to the Queensland Division of the WIA for the period 1 June 2012 to 30 July 2012 subject to a special condition requiring the WIA to provide ACMA with a schedule setting out the date, location and name of each club using the callsign for the period 1 June 2012 to 30 July 2012.

ACMA Rules for Special Event Callsigns

The use of a special event callsign is subject to certain rules imposed by ACMA. In addition, the WIA is bound by the Business Rules in respect of callsign pursuant to the Deed between it and ACMA. Those Business Rules repeat what is published by ACMA on its website in relation to special event callsigns, namely:

“Requests for special event callsigns will not be accepted for the purposes of:
• gaining an advantage in on-air competitions; or
• for use during Islands on the Air (IOTA) competitions, DX expeditions, or fox hunts and the like; or
• annual events.”

Use of the VK100WIQ Callsign

Accordingly, the WIA as licensee of VK100WIQ, requests all clubs when using the VK100WIQ callsign to observe the following rules:

• A club using the callsign VK100WIQ may not participate in any contest or submit any log (including a check log) for any contest or apply for any award or participate in IOTA, engage in fox hunts or the like under that callsign;
• A club using the callsign VK100WIQ may provide reports and exchange sequence numbers with stations participating in a contest, and may make it clear to stations generally that it is prepared to do so.

Note: Numbers exchanged with stations participating in contests should be recorded in the “Comments” column of the WIA on-line logbook. To give effect to the special condition, the WIA has established the online roster for the callsign.
