VK100WIA callsign roster update

In the first two weeks of online bookings for the special callsign VK100WIA to celebrate the Centenary of Organised Amateur Radio in Australia next year, some 20 clubs have registered for a rostered three day slot.

Their registration details can be seen under the Centenary section of the WIA website and demonstrate how they are to get right behind the Centenary celebrations and promote amateur radio to the public. Some are to have a public open day at their club rooms, others are setting up in a local community facility and outdoors, and a few will be using the callsign during a traditional amateur radio activity.

The special issue call sign will be used by the WIA itself in May and shared amongst the WIA's affiliated radio clubs until the end of October. Clubs have been sent information on how to register and are encouraged to consider combining the callsign in conjunction with other activities. As a result, the VK100WIA roster is now 40% booked by clubs in all states. Indications are that others are about to finalise their involvement in the Centenary celebration. Bookings for the callsign roster must close in March.
